History and Philosophy
Silk weaving, once a cherished tradition in Cambodia, languished under the bloody regime of the Khmer Rouge in the 1970s. Today, Vanntha Ngorn is helping to revive her country’s silk weaving heritage, while empowering low-income women living in rural areas where livelihood options are few.
In 2009, Vanntha launched Color Silk, a social enterprise, after winning a national student business plan competition. Today its product line includes a richly hued array of raw textiles, scarves, and sarongs. Color Silk provides at-home training to rural women to build or enhance their weaving skills, and then equips them with materials and startup capital to launch their own home-based enterprises.
