Beyond the standard of carrying the certified fair trade label which insures ethical working conditions, fair wages, a supportive work atmosphere, preserved traditions and honored heritage, and an opportunity for every artisan to pursue their dreams,
your purchase of products from Cambodia support artisans who:
• Have disabilities such as polio. Polio is still a common disease in Cambodia, often as a result of US bombings in the area.
• Have been victims of human trafficking. Thanks to having dignified employment, women are rescued, restored, rehabilitated.
• Work in a safe environment with environmentally safe materials. One of the artisan groups grow and maintain an organic garden full of homegrown food and cotton. They’re growing the fair trade organic cotton that they later weave into fabric, right at their facility!
