Craft Village

Craft Village

Craft Village supports weaving families in the countryside of Cambodia by ordering and selling handwoven scarves and shawls.

World Fair Trade OrganizationTheir trade offers the weavers a fixed income next to the meagre income they get from farming their rice fields.

The weavers have been taught all tricks of the trade by their parents and grandparents. Their weaving experience is passed on and helps the younger generation.

Craft Village works with families in the provinces Takeo, Prey Veng, Phnom Srok and Prek Ho.

Counting Flowers offers scarves from artisans from the first two provinces. Artisans from Prey Veng are specialised in weaving very thin, very supple silk scarves and shawls.

Pom, his wife Sokoan and their family live in the village of Tanon in the Takeo province. They created Counting Flowers' beautiful collection silk scarves in natural dye.

Craft Village is a member of the 'Artisans' Association of Cambodia', a fair trade organisation that supports its fifty members that help to improve the living conditions of the most vulnerable people in the country.

Take a look at the shawls from Craft Village.
