SAMATOA LOTUS TEXTILE

luxury fabric made out of lotus fiber, handspinned and handwoven by women in Cambodia

The lotus fabric is very eco-friendly cause every

steps of the process is made by hand,

from the field till the clothes.

My work there was to elaborate a collection of handwoven bracelets and scarves in lotus combined whith some other natural fibers like silk and kapok.
