Started in 1998 in the remote northern Cambodian province of Preah Vihear, this Cambodia weaving enterprise employs over 80 land mine surviving farmers, spinners, dyers, weavers and finishers. In 2005, Carol Cassidy of Lao Textiles put her own enthusiasm on the line by taking over as owner and manager of this weaving group with the task of steering it to commercial viability. The project has a complete dye shop and modern section warping system with 38 looms. Each Cambodia Collection product is finished by hand. The Preah Vihear project contributes to sustainable income for the artisans. With the income from the project, the community has built homes with electricity, clean water and put their children through school.
