Helping Cambodians Free Themselves From The Weight of Poverty.
Working towards a better future for our people and the planet.
Fair Trade Crafts.
Towards Fair Trade.

While Cambodia has enjoyed years of peace and development since the war and atrocities of the brutal Khmer Rouge regime of the 1970's, today 30% of the population still live below the poverty line (on less than $1.25 per day). For this reason, Craftworks Cambodia makes their unique products by creating fair trade jobs for disadvantaged Cambodians with high levels of unemployment.

Artisans and crafts people are paid fairly and equitably for their skilful work, which keeps families together with food on their table. A liveable and reliable income is especially important for women as it allows them to raise healthy babies and children and provide for their future.

Craftworks Cambodia's products are skillfully made, beautiful and clever. They offer a range of traditional and contemporary products, from home d├ęcor to functional home ware as well as gifts, accessories and jewellery based on the finest aesthetic and artistic traditional workmanship of Cambodia.

The designs use inspiration and local materials from Cambodia 's rich tapestry, restoring and preserving many traditional Cambodian skills. The materials used vary with silk being the most common material, it is spun and woven in the villages, and made into superb silk scarves, shawls, purses and other accessories. Also popular are the Eco-friendly items. Recycled paper is used for jewellery and stationery and even discarded rice bags are recycled into wallets and bags.

Craftworks Cambodia maintains and practices a strong commitment to environmental awareness with many of the products being made from recycled and sustainable materials.
Craftworks Cambodia is a membership of Artisans Association of Cambodia ( AAC). AAC is a membership of WFTO and WFTO-ASIA. Please see Certificate of Membership.

Buyer feedback

  1. Janis 1 year 2 weeks

    Thank you for this product. It's everything I had hoped it would be - well-made and sturdy but also attractive. The fact that it is jewelry recycled from weaponry is the most appealing part. It would be better to use the earth's resources for this purpose instead of for war in the first place. Thank you kindly!

    My package came from Cambodia in good shape and quicker than packages I have received within the US. I was very impressed and appreciated a little cloth bag I received fro my earrings and the literature about the organization.

      Extremely pleased!

      Super fast delivery! Shipped from Cambodia to USA via DHL. I ordered on Sunday evening and I had it on Wed!

      They responded to a specific request that the pendant and earrings match each other since was buying them to go together. And they look GREAT!

      Quality is high. Jewelery looks very professional - not 'arts and craftsy'. the necklace that came w the pendant is great and the 'findings' really good as well.

      Came in fun cloth gift bags.

      I was so impressed with Craftworks Cambodia! I received my bag from Cambodia to the US in only 4 days! The messenger bag is a perfect gift for my sister who's mission in life is to promote fair trade and human rights. She will be proud to carry a product that will do just that! Thank you so much!

        The gold on the back of the bomb casing ring started coming off on the first day. It's beautiful, but I would have liked it to last.
