CLOSED: Giveaway: Cambodian Threads

A brand new selection of handcrafted, unique Cambodian silk scarves.



Cambodian Threads is a socially responsible company that offers fair trade silk scarves from Cambodia. Our products are handcrafted in a sweat-free environment by the Hengs, a family of artisans from a rural village in Cambodia called Prek Bongkong. For every scarf sold, we purchase basic school supplies for ten Cambodian public school children.



At Cambodian Threads, we believe that change has to start somewhere, and it is our firm commitment to make that change— one beautiful scarf at a time.

The Artisans
Our beautiful scarves are crafted by the Heng family on the island village of Prek Bongkong in Cambodia. The village, 20 miles away from Phnom Penh and accessible by ferry across the Mekong River, is a small rural commune inhabited by warm hospitable local Cambodians. Despite the picturesque landscape and friendly natives, there is limited access to resources for development. The Heng family has found a niche of using their ancient craft of hand weaving silk to survive and thrive.

The Heng Family takes pride in their art and it shows with the incredible detail and time they devote. Each scarf is a piece of art which requires astonishing skill and time to craft. Therefore, the Heng Family offers an extremely limited amount of their hand-made silk scarves; only 50 each month!

When I received the scarf it was totally unexpected that the quality would have been so high. Absolutely beautiful & a high end made scarf in my opinion. I love the lightness since it will make a perfect accessory to several different outfits. Also a unique piece to use as a belt! The colors were also very vibrant.

Plus it's really cool to know you helped a person in need. It's also awesome to say you are wearing something from Cambodia!
