Weaves of Cambodia

Our rating:

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.

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.


How to get there
To get there, you need to head south from the town centre/market area, then take a left just after the Red Cross hotel if you’re on Koh Ker Street, or the Provincial Hospital if you’re on Mlou Prei Street. Once you hit red dirt road, Weaves is down a narrow track just 400 metres down on the right hand side. It’s not marked in a visible sense, so keep an eye out for the dystopian karaoke/brothel on the left, and it’s just after there.
