The Story: 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 lives below the poverty line (on less than $1.25 per day). Craftworks Cambodia pays its artisans and crafts people fairly and equitably for their skillful work. Most are home-based, allowing artisans to raise their children while earning an income. The accessories and jewelry created are 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. Craftworks Cambodia maintains and practices a strong commitment to environmental awareness with many of the products being made from recycled and sustainable materials. Craftworks Cambodia is a member of Artisans Association of Cambodia, which is a member of the World Fair Trade Organization.
