Khmer Dress

Sampot Chang Kben: is the preferred choice of clothing for women of upper and middle classes for daily wear.
Regardless of class, all Cambodian women wear the Sampot Chang Kben on special events. Men also wear it too, but the traditional patterns depend on gender. It is worn by wrapping it around the waist, stretching it away from the body, and twisting the knot. The knot is then pulled between the legs and held by a metal belt.

Unlike the typical Sampot, it is more of a pair of pants than a skirt. It is a rectangular piece of cloth measuring 3 meters long and one meter wide,  This practice of daily wear died out at the beginning of the twentieth century.

The Sampot Chang Kben is adopted in Thailand and Laos, where it is known as Chong Kben. It dates to ancient Cambodia where deities often wore such styles.
