The ultimate eco-ethical accessories, these fabulous bags produced by Craftworks Cambodia give used cement sacks a second life – and create employment opportunities for workers with disabilities in Cambodia who craft them by hand in their homes.
Cambodia and Cambodians have suffered for decades as a result of war. It is still recovering from the atrocities of the brutal Khmer Rouge regime of the 1970’s. About a third of Cambodia’s population lives below the national poverty level. The sale of these goods made by Cambodian workers will help keep families together with food on the table. It’s especially important for women. The opportunity to earn a living will allow them to raise healthy babies and children. I believe people will buy these items when they see them. Many Cambodian crafts items are both beautiful and clever. Silk is the most common material it is spun and woven in the villages, and made into scarves, shawls, purses and other accessories. Also popular are the eco-friendly items made of discarded rice bags. Recycled rice sacks are made into wallets and bags. Further information about us, please visit www.craftworkscambodia.com
