Silk Ties – Fairly traded silk
Classic ethical silk ties!
Silk Ties 100% fair trade fine silk handwoven and eco-friendly. 3 solid colors available.
Fine silk is a natural light and uniform fabric. The shine, the shimmering colors and the softness make this silk an unrivaled fabric. The fine silk that we offer you, created by Artisans d'Angkor, has a silky texture while being firm and opaque, which means that the number of silkworm cocoons to create a thread is higher.
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).
