+ By purchasing these products, you are helping to create fair trade jobs for underprivileged Cambodians with high levels of unemployment. Artisans are paid fairly and equitably for their skillful work, which keeps families together with food on their table. A livable and reliable income is especially important for women as it allows them to raise healthy babies and children and provide for their future.
Ironwork artisans, living in an underprivileged community in the Kandal Province, approximately 45 minutes from Phnom Penh, Cambodia, make this recycled jewelry. Ironwork artisans skillfully mold materials into beautiful pieces, introducing a small income to underprivileged communities. While Cambodia has enjoyed years of peace and development since the war and atrocities of the brutal Khmer Rouge regime, today 30% of the population still live below the poverty line (on less than $1.25 per day).
The designs use inspiration from Cambodia's rich tapestry, restoring and preserving many traditional Cambodian skills.
