Natural Brown Paper & Recycled Paper Journal, ethically handmade by disadvantaged producers group in the community. While Cambodia has enjoyed years of peace and development since the war and atrocities of the brutal Khmer Rouge regime, today 30% of the population still live below the poverty line (on less than $1.25 per day). For this reason, Craftworks Cambodia makes their unique products by creating fair trade jobs for disadvantaged Cambodians with high levels of unemployment. Artisans and crafts people are paid fairly and equitably for their skilful work, which keeps families together with food on their table. A liveable and reliable income is especially important for women as it allows them to raise healthy babies and children and provide for their future. Craftworks Cambodia's products are skillfully made, beautiful and clever. They offer a range of traditional and contemporary products, from home décor to functional home ware as well as gifts, accessories and jewellery based on the finest aesthetic and artistic traditional workmanship of Cambodia. The designs use inspiration and local materials from Cambodia 's rich tapestry, restoring and preserving many traditional Cambodian skills. The materials used vary with silk being the most common material; it is spun and woven in the villages, and made into superb silk scarves, shawls, purses and other accessories. Also popular are the Eco-friendly items. Recycled paper is used for jewellery and stationery and even discarded rice bags are recycled into wallets and bags. Craftworks Cambodia maintains and practices a strong commitment to environmental awareness with many of the products being made from recycled and sustainable materials.

. The people of Cambodia have endured a great deal in a span of time shorter than my lifetime. Here is a very brief history; after the Vietnam War spread to Cambodia, the communist Khmer Rouge regime took power. What followed was years of devastation, mass killings, torture and fear. From 1975 to 1979, led by the Khmer Rouge leader Pol Pot, there was a reign of terror in this small country. In 4 years, nearly 2 million Cambodians were murdered. Under the government that followed a full pardon was given to all members of the Khmer Rouge for the genocide and atrocities they had committed, this was a slap in the face to the surviving Cambodian People. In 1993, a mere 20 years ago, peace came to Cambodia. Since then, the country has struggled to find growth and prosperity while surrounded by the remnants of war, the rule of a dictator and a communist government. The endless list of challenges they still face include land mines, extreme poverty, lack of infrastructure, lack of jobs and a population left deeply wounded both physically and psychologically.
We also have a brilliant selection of bags made from recycled materials, which make ideal gifts for people who love all things earth-friendly. Each bag is crafted by hand in an ethical manner under the Fair Trade Cambodia initiative. Beautifully made, fair-trade and environmentally friendly. You can't get better than that!
fair trade Cambodia. Recycled paper bead friendship bracelet, ethically handmade by vulnerable home based women workers. www.craftworkscambodia.com Mrs.Sokhun Houn is an inspirational woman. She is 47 years old and was born in Tram Kna district, Takeo province. She was forced to leave her home and move to a different province by notorious Khmer Rouge regime. Eventually she came to live in the dump area on the outskirts of Phnom Penh city. She does not know how to read and write, she knows only how to speak Cambodian. She has 5 sons and 2 daughters. Her first son finished grade 9. He is now married with a son. Three of the others finished high school and all the other children are still at school. She lives in the dump area and picks up discarded things which she then recycles into products she sells. This is her way of earning an income to support herself and her children. She learned how to make recycled paper bead jewelry. The lessons were held a long way from her house and every day she would walk there until she knew how to make bead jewelry. It took her about two months to learn how to make the recycled paper bead jewelry, picture frames, dust bins, hats, bags and more. Her husband worked as a security guard and when he had free time he also worked as motorbike taxi driver. The times when he was able to come back home, he helped his wife with the work and takes care of all his children. He has been now promoted and is an administrator for a local NGO. Because of her hard work and great devotion to her children all of her children have been able to go to school. The sale of her crafts has added to her life pleasure, decency and a chance for her kids to gain an education and careers. With the support of groups such as Craftworks Cambodia, many people like Mrs.Sokhun Houn are hoping that the sales of these recycled paper beads jewelry, picture frames, recycled plastic bags, hats and dust bins will generate an income that will provide their families and their communities the chance at a better future. This project (Craftworks Cambodia) ensures that the artisans are fairly rewarded for their work and provide support for education and training in the communities in Cambodia.
