Dawn approaches on the horizon, the sun bathing everything in its soft light. A twinkle catches your eye. You look closer and notice morning dew on a perfect spider web. The tiny droplets glisten like miniature jewels combined together on a near invisible thread. In that one moment, it is simple beauty and perfection.

Ix Kanleom means “the spider’s web catching the morning dew”. The delicate cotton/bamboo yarn is woven together in rows one at a time just like a spider’s web and the beads are reminiscent of the dew that collects in the wee hours of dawn.
