Trash to Treasure


Once considered trash, used rice bags are now turned into gorgeous treasures!  The Artisans’ Association of Cambodia crafts beautiful products such as wallets, totes, duffel bags, and cosmetic cases from recycled rice bags that were once destined for the landfill.  Each handcrafted product is super sturdy and displays a unique print.  The Artisans’ Association of Cambodia really makes an impact with its fair trade, environmentally friendly creations!

These rice bag accessories are not only good for the environment, but also provide a living wage for Cambodia’s artisans. The AAC provides jobs for the country’s most marginalized groups including trafficked women, landmine victims, polio sufferers, and severely impoverished families.  The revenue brought to communities through the AAC’s efforts have improved public health, education, literacy, and women’s rights.  Support The Artisans’ Association of Cambodia and the communities it helps today by purchasing one of these sustainable rice bag designs!
