Myanmar
Each country has its own varieties of silk cocoon. Cambodia and Vietnam have gold cocoon feeding on the mulberry. India has Tussar, Endi/Eri, Muga varieties. Siem Reap is the gateway town to Angkor Park, where each of the monuments show many narratives from Hindu and Buddhist mythology. The carvings on the walls and the sculptures in the monuments speak volumes about the Angkor traditional textiles. But the drapes, styles etc. of the textiles on these carving and sculptures do not relate to the texture, colors, materials, vibrancy etc. of the textiles. Siem Reap the city of historic temples is the major tourists' attraction, as the world heritage site of Angkor Park. The footfall coming to Siem Reap makes the city the right place to have a textiles museum showcasing traditions from six countries.

A walk through the galleries of this wonderfully conceptualized museum, gives a feel of connectivity between the mighty rivers Ganga and Mekong. A visit to this museum is an opportunity to experience the textiles treasures from India, Cambodia and other members States of Mekong region. This is an excellent effort, not only at showcasing our vibrant textiles traditions but also at nurturing those traditions by providing a larger audience an insight into the traditional skills and textile crafts.
