Cambodia Knits

Jan 28, 2011

Half way between Anne-Claire Petit and Ugly Doll, there’s Cambodia Knits.

 

Founded in 2005 by Monika Nowaczyk who was at that time working for the NGO CARECambodia, Cambodia Knits is quite an exemplary social enterprise which trains and employs over 25 Cambodian women. I have been reading quite a bit about her success story in the local press, and even though I did not get a chance to speak with her or see her little dolls, I felt compelled to share it on BozAround.

 

It’s an ethical alternative to all the stuffed creatures that can be found in the children’s market these days. You can also sponsor a knitter by emailing info@cambodiaknits.com . If you’re looking for a knitted little monster, you might as well get one that does good to the world. You can buy Cambodia Knits online on Eyaas.com

I think that’s it for Cambodia…onto Vietnam now. It’s just an hour flight from Phnom Penh to Ho Chi Minh City, or an 8 hours boat ride along the Mekong river, which a lot of people choose to do.
