Our new silk scarf colour samples have just arrived and we are so pleased with the results! Here's a little teaser photo of what's to come...
Thank you Latitudes magazine for the fantastic 2 page feature in your shopping in Kandal Village Siem Reap article!

'More chic than eccentric'... A lovely couple informed us our shop had recently been feature in The Sydney Morning Herald and were kind enough to give us their torn page for our records and we were tickled pink with the article!
Some of our lovely customers shared a bit of press they had come across featuring our shop and were kind enough to give us their torn page from Afar Magazine Sept/Oct 2016, we love a bit of press so thank you AFAR magazine! We were amongst good company, featured alongside some of our Kandal Village neighbours Frangipani Spa, Saarti, The Little Red Fox and Baktouk Food House.
Our noughts & crosses travel game is made from traditional handwoven Cambodian kroma fabric and the pieces are made from coconut wood. These make great gifts for children and adults alike, handy when Christmas is just around the corner!
Our Ceramic Christmas trees and candle holders are getting us in the mood for the festive season! We've added a few more candles and silverleaf cocobowls from our current collections to create a cheerful table setting for a festive get together.
This Sunday the 4th of December is the Angkor Wat International Half Marathon and although we will not be running (not that fit...), we will be cheering from the sidelines!
We have received a number requests from runners traveling to Siem Reap to keep the shop open so that they could do a spot of shopping during their trip, and if they can run, we can certainly stay open for them. The shop will be open from 12 to 7pm for this Sunday the 4th of December only.
Good Luck to everyone taking part in the half marathon!
We've received our handmade beaded tassels and they are bringing us lots of colourful joy!

We headed to the seaside for the Pchum Ben holidays and Kep did not disappoint! We stayed at the beautiful Knai Bang Chatt resort and made a feast of all the seafood on offer, the crab and pepper dish is not to be missed! A trip to the nearby islands is also a must for those who enjoy snorkelling.
