Cambodian Flower Backpack VW 37CGRY
Our slim Backpack Purse is a smart everyday organizer with urban flair. Handmade using gray fabric with silk-screened Cambodian flower design on the front pocket, back, and interior zip pocket by artisans working with VillageWorks, our fair trade partner in Cambodia.
VillageWorks was started to create employment and provide skills and livelihoods to women and young people in a small village in the Baray District of Kampong Thom Province in Cambodia in 2001. Villageworks has a history of working with artisans as whole persons and addressing the complex challenges this recovering nation faces. The name VillageWorks expresses their focus on handicrafts produced in villages using indigenous materials, native implements, and simple craftsmanship. It also expresses their intent to teach artisans the value and meaning of work. About 80% of the artisans suffer from the effects of childhood polio, and are all full-time, salaried workers. Partners for Just Trade began working with VillageWorks in 2013.
