A stunning Cambodian Hand Woven Pidan Silk Textile sometimes referred to as “hoi” in Cambodia and Ikat in other parts of Asia.
The weaving of a pidan involves hol the Khmer word for the technique used in dying ikat, it consists of tie-dying silk threads in a specific pattern before the weaving is commenced. A piece such as this would have taken several weeks or even months to make, beautiful colours with decorative motifs, the end piece plain red colour.
Long pieces such as this are often used as a ceremonial wall hanging in temples. Patterns on these beautiful silk Pidans range from Buddhist art, animals, serpents, birds, scenes from daily life and human figures.
