Availability as of November 15

At present, only one scarf remains for sale. I will be purchasing a new supply of scarves while I am in Cambodia for Christmas; if you see a scarf that you would like to pre-order, let me know and I will purchase one while I am there. These scarves will be available shortly following January 13th. Thank you!

Item Description: Black Krama

The "krama" is what distinctly separates the Khmer (Cambodians) from their neighbors -- the Thai, the Vietnamese, and the Laotians. The scarf is used for many purposes including for style, protection from the sun, an aid [for your feet] when climbing trees, a hammock for infants, a towel, or as a "sarong". A krama can also be easily shaped into a small child's doll for play. Under the Khmer Rouge, kramas of various patterns were part of standard clothing.
