I’ve been so consumed by the highs and lows of presidential politics recently that the wonderful world of textiles has fallen by the wayside. But now I’m craving some relief!

The NPR show Marketplace aired a story about a silk production company in Cambodia – Mekong Blue – earlier this week. I can’t say I’m in love with the products shown on their website but they look like a great source for custom production and they’re certainly a good addition to any list of textile companies focusing on fair trade, positive rural development, etc.
