Who made the butterfly?

The women from CWSG (Cambodia Women’s Support Group) in Phnom Penh make the hair bow from upcycled fabric. CWSG was founded by Mrs. Ky Kanary with the purpose of  providing a source of income as well as social support to the women in the group. The members of the group meet on a regular basis to learn new skills and to make products, which they sell in the CWSG shop in Phnom Penh.

What is upcycled fabric?

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.
