Soieries du Mékong is a social enterprise that has a double mission: in Europe it is a player in the socially responsible fashion world, offering top quality scarves and other silk items; in Cambodia, it responds to a social crisis, namely the struggle against the depopulation of rural areas, through the training and fostering of its workers, providing them with a viable means of support for the long term.
Noted for its commitment to fair trade business practices, the brand creates two collections annually, designed by an artist in France and hand-woven in Cambodia by women artisans. Each scarf is signed by the weaver and on the label you can see the name and photograph of the weaver. To bring you closer to the artisan that created your scarf you can watch on the brand web site a film dedicated to the weaver and travel to Cambodia to meet these weavers as "Soieries du Mékong" believes in connecting the craftsmen to the customers.
Here are a few pictures of the scarves and you can find a limited range on www.fashioncompassion.co.uk
