Silk Market - Cambodia

Walking through a market in Cambodia is like walking through the inside of a silky rainbow. The rows and rows of vibrant colored silks are seemingly endless. It's so abundant that it is easy to take their beauty for granted. While traveling from Phnom Penh to Siem Reap, we came across a silk farm and decided to learn a bit more about where the silk comes from. Watching the process evolve - from the tiny silk worms eating mulberry plants, to the women spinning the fine thread - gave me a deeper appreciation of the rainbows flowing through the markets.
