‘’Craftworks Cambodia is an organization working to provide vocational training and marketing skills to home based producers through the sale of contemporary arts and crafts items (…….) made from recycled and sustainable materials (……..) based on the finest aesthetic and artistic traditional workmanship of Cambodia ’’
We all have read similar descriptions many times. However the more you browse in Craftworks Cambodia site, the more you realize the underestimated truth behind the words :
First, you are bewildered by the materials – but we’ll refer to them further on.
Then you are amazed with the artists’ creativity good taste and special abilities ( no, the artists cannot fly but being able to knit a fashionable backpack when you have lost your sight needs more than talent … ).
You might also spare a thought about their fortitude and stamina when reading their personal stories or even catch yourself smiling from the philosophical irony of turning empty bullets shells – that have killed your family – into pendants bearing the tree of life….
But enough said, enjoy some pictures of the Craftworks Cambodia products that you can find on their site.
