CAMBODIA-LIFESTYLE-CLOTHING-SILK

In a picture taken on February 12, 2013, a Cambodian worker feeds silkworms at the Banteay Dek Silk station in Kandal province, some 30 kilometers southeast of Phnom Penh. In a small room in the Cambodian capital, laboratory technicians wearing latex gloves and flip-flops inspect hundreds of buzzing white silkworm moths before pairing them up to mate. With its silk industry in rapid decline, Cambodia is pinning its hopes on moth matchmaking and disease control to save its precious silkworms and keep centuries-old traditions alive.
