Weaves of Cambodia

Weaves of Cambodia

More on Krong Preah Vihear
A cooperative set up by Vietnam War Veterans, Weaves of Cambodia was created to fund prosthetics for landmine victims, but evolved over time into a source of income for disabled Cambodians.
Travelfish says:

Today’s beneficiaries include landmine victims, as well as victims of polio and other diseases. The quality silk is spun, dyed and woven here, and is now part of Carol Cassidy’s operation, Lao Textiles which has received worldwide acclaim. The beautiful scarves can be bought at this workshop for a fraction of their prices elsewhere -- roughly $20 for old stock up to around $60.
