Baskets of Cambodia Spread
Baskets of Cambodia, formed in 1996 in war-torn Cambodia, in villages
surrounding the famous temples of Angkor Watt.
In 2000 they expanded there operation to the outskirts of Phnom Penh in
order to develop a unique line of purses, a line that incorporated traditional
weaving and western style to create an entirely distinct look in purses.
Baskets of Cambodia started with a poor family of 8 headed by a single
woman. The woman was sick and in need.
Now she is healthy. Her daughters still sew and her son helps in the
development of new styles.
In the last 8 years Baskets of Cambodia has introduced this market to
the world with innovations and new styles, and now employ over 200 makers.

original ideas, but you won't find better quality products inside and out.
