upcycling at it’s best

While in Cambodia last month we picked up a couple of messenger bags made from recycled rice sacks. Upon further inspection I realized they have a website,, with many other varieties of bags available- and I wish I had purchased at least one of every kind of their bags and wallets (they were extremely cheap by American standards- to say the least). I’m in love, love, love with all of their goods and the premise of the company and operations. Cambodia needs small business, recycling and innovators like Ms. Yung Sothea who founded Angkor Recycled in 2007. Hats off to a job well done, if I owned a boutique in town I would be importing these goods for sure.
