The Pioneers

Awen Delaval joins the Shamengo Villa

27 April 2016
Based in Cambodia, French pioneer Awen Delaval manufactures lotus thread, the only natural microfiber in the world.
Creating with ethics Mots-cl├ęs : Ethical fashion

The absorbency of the lotus allows it to be spun into fabrics with extraordinary properties, which have caught the eye of luxury brands. Samatoa, the cooperative created by Awen in 2004, is now seeking the means to industrialise production techniques to make the cost of lotus fabric competitive with silk. These high quality eco-friendly textiles will add colour and intelligent design to the Shamengo Villa.
