A.N.D. Artisan Designer is a Phnom Penh-based fair trade brand, lead by fashion designer Alan James Flux and co-designer/general manager Mr. Pheap. A.N.D. supports disabled and otherwise disadvantaged, but highly trained artisans, including those from minority groups, all working together to create innovative, high-quality pieces showcasing Cambodian skills and materials. The brand is particularly known for innovative designs and contemporary takes on traditional patterns.
Sometimes the garment factories order too much fabric, or a design gets cancelled resulting in piles of leftover fabric. Traditionally, this leftover fabric ended up in landfills, but nowadays, you can find it at the local markets around Phnom Penh. By using this material to make new items such as the hair bows, we prevent beautiful material from going to waste while at the same time contributing to a more sustainable garment production.
