Great place to learn how silk is made
Mar 2020
This is an association that give work to locals. It is amazing to see how they produce silk and weave it to beautiful garnments, all by hand. What patience they have!
Bying there is expensive but when you see the amount of work put into one piece, it's definitely worth every penny. In addition they do not take any profit, all remainting money after taxes and operational expenses are distributed to the workers

Learn how the silk cocoon gets made into fabric

We had our own driver so we just showed up around 3 pm. It took a bit of asking to get directions to the starting point where a guide was available, but it was a short walk. No charge for the guide but we gave him a tip as it was very interesting. Since it was late in the day each station was not running at full capacity but we got to see each step and to taste a boiled silk worm. I have a much better understanding of the process and now I can recognize really good quality silk products. The store has a variety of lovely (some expensive) products.

wonderful to see how silk is produced
Feb 2020
We spent a few hours touring the silk farm and learning how silk worms are grown and the way the silk is extracted from the cocoons. Then we followed the formation of the threads and the production of material. It was fascinating!

Interesting and informative tour
Feb 2020
We had visited Artisans Angkor and noticed that they offer a free coach trip to the Angkor Silk Farm so we signed up for the 1:30 trip (the other is at 09:30 I believe). It was a pleasant 20 minute drive through interesting countryside. At the farm we were giving an extremely informative tour as we were led through the different stages of silk production and seeing it all happen. We now really appreciate all that goes in to making pure silk! At the end of the tour we were taken to the shop. There was no hard sell but the items were of such high quality and still at reasonable prices that it was hard to resist! One of our favourite trips during our visit to Siem Reap.

Very interesting

A twice daily free bus was deployed from the main factory in Siem Reap. About a 25 minute ride through the countryside in an air- con bus was interesting before taking a tour of the farm commencing from the life cycle of silk worms right through to the final silk product production. We were taken around the factory watching each step of the process. It was very interesting. Would well recommend the morning or afternoon trip.

With a free shuttle in a nice air conditioned van from the Artisans Angkor shop, the silk farm can’t be missed. You get to learn all about how the silk is produced from the silk worm, and how it is processed to make products. You see it all in action. At the end of the tour you can browse through an on-site shop of handmade products. It was very informative and worth the time!

Visit to farm

If you want to know how silk is made from moth, cocoon to thread and loom this is the place. It’s quite magical to see the process . The obvious skills involved are complex and it’s real artisans work. There’s a shop to visit where the results of the labour can be seen. The tour is free but watch out in the shops where the merchandised is understandably pricey

We really enjoyed our spontaneous visit. The tour guide explained in detail how silk is produced and how the beautiful designs are created. The gift shop features hand made products based on fair trade principles - highly recommended for a visit!
