Handmade weaving and sell handmade products
Soieries du Mékong ensures the daily life of more than fifty weavers, seamstresses, employees and their family.
Since 2001, our mission is to empower women in Banteay Chhmar, one of the poorest areas in Cambodia by offering them sustainable employment (good salary and working conditions).
To succeed, we train young women over 18 to traditional hand-weaving thus enabling them to enhance an ancestral know-how. At the same time, they take classes in Khmer and financial management to equip them with the basics they have often missed out on.
Once the training cycle is completed, the weavers work from home using looms lent by the company, or work from the workshop in Banteay Chhmar.
