Peace Handicrafts is a social-support business established in 2002 to provide training and employment opportunities to landmine victims, disabled persons and the deaf in Cambodia. Peace Handicrafts adheres to the philosophies of social responsibility and a clean green environment. Since 2002 it has been producing high quality products made from local hand-woven silks and recycled materials, and has become a leading exporter of these products to overseas markets. Training priority is given to the disabled, the deaf and the underprivileged to gain the necessary skills to meet stringent quality requirements for export markets. An intensive training program has been developed to enable trainees to acquire the necessary skills to earn employment.
Through the work done at Peace Handicrafts, the artisans can support their families and provide them with an education that otherwise they would have never had. The artisans now believe that they have become worthy members of society and some of them aspire to open their own businesses.
I just received my bag today, so I can't yet comment on its durability, but it is very pretty. The shimmery effect is fun. I ordered the purple. In most light, it's sort of a faded denim color, but the purple shows up when it moves around & the light hits it the right way.
It's bigger than I was picturing (although it's exactly the size that it says it is, so that's my mind's eye failing, not their description!) The fabric feels sturdy and it seems to be well-made (neat seams, etc.) so I anticipate that it will hold up well. I'll let you know after it's had some daily use being carried around at school all day.***Review update*** April 29, 2015 - I've been carrying it around all day at work since January & it still looks brand new. Very happy with this bag.
