Craftworks Cambodia-Artisan Story.

With the support of groups such as Craftworks Cambodia, and the sales of hand crafted products such as bags, and wallets, an income that offers families and communities the chance at a better future can be provided to artisans . Craftworks Cambodia works to support these artisans, it ensures that the artisans are fairly rewarded for their work and provides support for education and training in the communities in Cambodia.

Ms. Srey Mach

SREY MACH is 32 years old, she lives in, Kom Pong Cham province. She has six brothers and sisters and is the third daughter of her family . She finished only grade 8. She lives with Ms Socheat who has helped Srey Mach by allowing her to live in her flat paying only for the basics such as water and electricity.

Ms Srey Mach worked in a factory until 2002. It was sweated labour and very difficult at this factory. In 2002 she went to attend a ceremony at a temple and tragically on the way she stepped on a mine. The explosion left her badly injured and she lost one of her legs. Srey Mach lost her job and her hope after the accident but with the support of friends and family she found the strength to continue on.
In 2004, she learned to sew bags and wallets. Initially she sewed some bags as piece work for Peace NGOs then in 2005 she began working as a teacher teaching children at a health care centre how to sew. In 2009 she found employment training amputees to sew bags and wallets. Finally she found Craftworks Cambodia and then she started her own small business producing eco-friendly silk bags, wallets and other items for Craftworks Cambodia. She is delighted to work with Craftworks Cambodia. Craftworks Cambodia is able to offer her enough work to get by day by day but Srey Mach loves to work hard and would like to earn enough money to be able to provide well for herself and her family. Whenever she has free time she sews more beautiful ikat silk bags or wallets
The support of the customers, those people who support fair trade or are conscious consumers, those that buy her products through Craftworks Cambodia help change the life of Srey Mach and all the others like her.

Craftworks Cambodia's insight:
Fair Trade Cambodia.Eco-friendly Lady Purses, ethically handcrafted by disabled home based workers in the community. www.craftworkscambodia.com 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.

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.
