Lotus Silk was founded by Vannary San back in 2003 with the purpose of promoting local silk production, but Lotus Silk also works to create employment under fair conditions in the different rural communities that the social business is collaborating with. Furthermore, Lotus Silk employs a group of young, female tailors in the in-house workshop, and they are the ones making the vest.
Sometimes the garment factories order too much fabric, or a design gets cancelled resulting in piles of leftover fabrics. Traditionally, this leftover fabric ended up in landfills, but nowadays, you can find it on the local markets around Phnom Penh. By using this material to make new garment items, we prevent beautiful fabric from going to waste and contribute to a more sustainable garment production.
