I hope you all are enjoying the start of spring. Admittedly, I have not missed this cold weather - we've been enjoying an early tan we don't usually have till June! As part of my travels, I want to keep you involved with not only updates, but some goodies to be found in store. Recently, Joel and I visited Artisan's Angkor Silk Farm in Siem Reap, Cambodia. During our visit to this amazing sweatshop-free business, we learned about silk farming and the making of silk clothing.
Artisan's Angkor started in the late 1990's employing rural youth with limited education to design artisan products. The company provides fair income (high than average living salary) to its 1300 employees along with social and medical welfare. All employees hold a 20% share of the company's profits. The business reinvests into the rural villages its employees come from by offering vocational workshops and training. We are thrilled to partner with Angkor by sending back some scarves and skirts for you to dress to the nines in.
