MEDC designers 2017.
My name is Polham Seila and I am the Principal Founder of Khmer Artisanry.
Khmer Artisanry was established in 2007 with a group of just a few skilled weavers who were survivors of the Khmer Regime. We worked with them in order to help revive the tradition of natural dyeing and hand weaving of Khmer golden silks and cottons of ikat textile. Now we are working closely with poor woman, disabled woman and widow woman in the villages of Cambodia.
Lotus Silk is a Social Enterprise, owned and run by Cambodian Woman Entrepreneur Vannary San, formed with the intention of bringing social economic justice, inclusive, and sustainable fashion house. We create handmade clothing and accessories using ethically sourced and sustainable fabrics with a team of talented, in-house store tailors.
I am trained as a highly-skilled woodcarver and now director of Watthan Artisans Cambodia; an intuitive designer with a wealth of local expertise across the local hand-generated product sector. One of my recent development objectives is to expand the skill and employment opportunities and increase regular incomes to the producers.
