Khmer Creations is born from a passion for contemporary accessories and desire to make the world a better place.
Khmer Creations began in 2007 with a vision to develop a creative business that would tangibly benefit Cambodian women and their communities. What started as therapeutic jewelry making workshops in shelters for sex trafficked women quickly became a business creating long-term employment opportunities.
Khmer Creations now provide skills training and secure employment to young women who have previously been working in exploitative jobs (including the sex trade and unregulated factories) and those who are at-risk of entering these industries due to difficulties in accessing education and employment opportunities.
Buying jewelry and accessories is one of life's little pleasures. But it can also bring change and opportunity for the women who make it. Every product is made with love and makes a difference in the lives of Khmer Creations' artisans and their families.
Khmer Creations is committed to fair trade as a means of poverty reduction in developing countries. The Australian designers from Khmer Creations work collaboratively on the designs of many of their products with the artisans who make them. These artisans receive wages that reflect their beautiful work, as well as education and social support, which enables them to pursue a rewarding career in a supportive, safe and sustainable environment.
Khmer Creations even has a daycare to make sure that their little ones are taken care of whilst their mums proudly create gorgeous and unique Jewellery.
