Its principal aim is to support local women, though men are also among the 100 locals who are now employed in the production of beautiful, richly coloured silk scarves and kramas that are spun, dyed and woven here. The scarves and other accessories can be bought at the workshop -- they range from $8 to $65 (scarves start at around $40). Prices are discounted for the Banteay Chhmar outlet, or if you’re flush you can always pick up something later at their Paris outlet, where prices for scarves start at $65.
