Silk is a natural and renewable material, biodegradable and less polluting to produce (source: Guide du vêtement responsable - 2008, Équiterre). In addition, it is fair trade because it is handmade according to an ancestral know-how by the artisans of a cooperative, and among them, have social policy and decent working conditions.
Additionally, natural or dyes that don't contain heavy metals are used; they are less damaging to artisans and the environment and therefore eco-friendly while promoting sustainable development.
Over the years, Artisans Angkor has become a showcase of Cambodian craftsmanship for its silks worthy of the Silk Road!
Artisans Angkor has pioneered a new social policy in Cambodia, guaranteeing a fair income as well as social and medical welfare to all its employees. The artisans themselves formed an association that holds a 20-percent share in the company.
A workshop opening means more employment in disadvantaged rural communities and therefore an improvement of social conditions and poverty alleviation.
Artisans Angkor is a member of the Artisans Association of Cambodia (AAC) which is a World Fair Trade Organization - Asia member (WFTO-Asia).
