Once common in South-East and East Asia, the complex traditional manufacturing method of weaving sedge mats has vanished in most parts of Asia. In Cambodia's Kandal province, however, the technique has been preserved and is still widely applied. It allows to produce the high quality fine structured mats called Kandals. The production process of sedge mats involves considerable preparatory work: Sedges (Cyperus iria) are cultivated by sedge farmers or by weavers themselves. The finishing mat is used as Carpet and sleeping mat and the semi-finished us as the interior decoration items ..etc.
