There is an exciting program on National Geographic/About Asia series (next one April 13) about the efforts of Kikuo Morimoto who has formed an n.g.o. called IKTT to revitalize the incredible traditional silk weaving of Cambodia, which was almost lost when the Khmer Rouge rose to power. Morimoto has won a Rolex Award for Excellence for his efforts, among other awards. Here are some links:
