Our Amazing Cambodian Artisans
We have the most beautiful cotton, kapok and silk products from Cambodia. These products are all made by hand by artisans affected by HIV Aids or landmine injuries and their families.
They are often ostracized in the cities and left to beg from tourists. Sadly, I saw this first hand on my visit to Cambodia. This forces them to move to more remote areas.
I found these products in an Artisan’s Market in Siem Reap in a small stall selling to tourists and this is where my journey with these products started.
The artisans are from 5 different villages in 5 different proveniences of Cambodia, each one providing different products. Some only doing bags, some jewellery, others providing raw and fine silk, scarves and shawls, and blankets.
