Cleverly recycled jewellery

This ingenious jewellery is crafted by Craftworks Cambodia from found objects – the bullet casings and bombshells that litter the countryside. Handmade by artisans with disabilities, these stunning pieces are statements of hope and peace. 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.

fair trade Cambodia. Golden Cocoon Silk Shawl Scarf, ethically handwoven by local disadvantaged women weavers in the community,Cambodia. www.handmadecambodia.com Cambodian culture has a long been associated with the production of silk and fine silk fabrics such as those used in these scarves. The Cambodian silk industry has survived the country’s political unrest and civil war and is now very much alive. It is generally believed that growing mulberry plants, silk worm breeding and silk weaving was introduced to Cambodia in the 13th century. Then, in the late 19th century and continuing through the two World Wars, sericulture ( silk farming ) developed even further. World War II caused a shortage of fabric in European countries, which consequently accelerated its growth in Cambodia. Mulberry plantations reportedly covered a total of five to six thousand hectares, and yarn production eventually reached 150 tons per year at the end of World War II. At that time, 10 to 30 percent of families worked in this golden silk industry; Women bred silk worms and wove their cloth for traditional skirts, shirts. These fine garments were especially favored by Royal families and dignitary. Now these beautiful garments are worn by many Cambodian ladies and men at traditional weddings or special events. The techniques of mulberry growing, breeding the silk worms and weaving the yarn were passed from one generation to the next and from mother to daughter Young girls learned sericulture by helping with those tasks of which they were capable. By the time they were about 12 years old, when their mothers felt that they had the skills they needed and if there were enough mulberry trees to sustain a second batch, these girls tried their own hand at breeding worms and weaving The, Golden Cocoon Silk Collection , is inspired by the local organic silk which is hand-dyed and hand-woven using only natural dyes/colors. The communities for this collection is the only revival area of the Golden silk yarn production in Cambodia.
