This Pidan was revitalized from the photo which was taken at the National Museum of Cambodia in 1970s.The pattern -weaving technique, designs and surface layout clearly share common ground with Malaysian and Indonesian textiles. Their original cloth is thought to have been produced by Cham people, an ethnic minority in Cambodia with deep ties with the Malay world. The unique aspect of the cloth is that it contains sea motifs such as sailing ships, fish, crabs as well as familiar Cambodian textile motifs such as the tree of life , the naga and the peacocks, and small birds.
