Outfit Your Fella in Stunning Silk Ties from BlueSilk.org for Valentine's Day!11:06 am
Skip the cheesy chocolates and get him something he'll actually use. Not only are the Silk Ties from BlueSilk.org gorgeous works of art, they really mean something too.
"The women of Stung Treng Women’s Development Center spin raw silk into thread and dye it in an array of rich, vibrant colors. Looms are set up to create the various patterns of silk cloth. It is at this point that craft becomes art. Depending on the complexity of a pattern, setting up a single loom can take more than a week. Once a loom is ready, weaving begins. Weaving a scarf typically takes another one or two weeks. Larger or more complex items may take more than a month to weave."
Shop BlueSilk.org Ties and support Cambodian women.
