Sampot is the traditional national dress of Cambodia which traces its origins back to the 1st century AD when the ruler of Cambodia asked all the people of his kingdom to wear a dress to cover their bodies, under the influence of some Chinese envoys. This traditional dress has survived up to date despite the roller coaster-like history of Cambodia. It is a long piece of cloth, rectangular in shape which is to be wrapped around the lower part of your body and the extra cloth can be used to make various patterns in the front at the belly. The length of the Sampot is usually 5-6 feet. These silk woven clothes are used on various events and festivals in Cambodia like weddings, funerals, and New Year Eve.
