Artisans d’Angkor is a Cambodian social business whose purpose is to create job opportunities for young people living in rural areas, while reviving at the same time traditional Khmer craftsmanship (stone and wood carving, painting on statues and on silk, lacquering, and silver plating).
The organisation is located on Stung Thmey Street; 2 minutes walk from the Old Market in Siem Reap town centre.
Two sites are open to the public in Siem Reap – one specializing in crafts located on Stung Thmey Street and the other specializing in silk at the Angkor Silk Farm, a short 20 minute tuk tuk ride from the town. Free entry and guide – donations and tips encouraged.
Many outlets for Artisans d’Angkor products can be found in town.
