A social company specializing in Silk and Arts & Crafts, Artisans Angkor showcases and sells a wide range of handmade pieces produced according to traditional handicraft processes in its workshops located in the Siem Reap province. Two sites are open to the public and propose free guided tours that let visitors discover about Cambodia’s culture through craftsmanship.
Artisans Angkor is a semi-public company which was originally created to help young Cambodian people find work near their home village in Siem Reap province.
As the offshoot of an educational project aiming at providing professional skills to rural communities with little schooling, Artisans Angkor has maintained its actions in education by developing its own training program.
Since its creation, Artisans Angkor has pioneered a new social policy in Cambodia by guaranteeing fair compensation packages including healthcare and numerous social advantages to its employees.
Artisans Angkor is the largest employer of Siem Reap province. It regularly invests in the opening of workshops in rural villages and in the development of new training programs. Today, it employs about 1120 people, including more than 800 artisans, in 48 workshops.
Over the years, Artisans Angkor has become a real showcase of Khmer craftsmanship for its silk fabrics and garments, stone and wood carving, lacquerware, ceramics, silver-plated copperware, silk painting, and jewelry.
