Natural cambodian lacquer
As neighbouring countries, the use of natural lacquer is ancestral. However, their know-how disappeared with years.
Our workshop organise a yearly collect of natural lacquer in Siem Reap province. In the meantime, we have a responsibility in the preservation of Cambodian’s forest. We act with local authorities to perpetuate our art by protecting lacquer trees.
Originally used to waterproof roofs, boats, natural lacquer can also be used with natural pigments to ornament an object.
In addition to natural lacquer, we also frequently use gold leaves, parchment, tannery, shagreen, pearls, etc.
