Artisans d'Angkor Silk Display - When the Angkor empire was in its glory, thousands of craftsmen erected what is now considered one of the wonders of the world: the Angkor Wat complex. After the civil war in Cambodia, many Cambodian arts were in danger of dying out until a professional training school was founded to help young Cambodians rediscover traditional crafts and give them the opportunity to take part in the rebuilding of their country. Artisans d'Angkor was established as a natural offshoot of the Chantiers-Écoles project as a working school for the young craftsmen that had been trained. The skilled artisans have been organized into a self-sustaining craft network.
