This store, Peace Handicrafts, is wonderful (its beside ZANDO but different). It has all kinds of clothing and items that are good for ones own use, gifts, or souvenirs, made by deaf people and people injured by landmines in Cambodia. Good for men and women. Traditional and modern styles and items, as well as fusion style. Its all hand made. I bought a handmade laptop carrying case that I think is so well designed and looks excellent and sharp, I bought a beautiful greeting card, and a nice new wallet to match my new laptop case. I didn't expect to buy anything but the items they have are really practical and unique and priced for great value. If you like shopping you'll like this, and even if you don't shop a lot, you'll still like it and will likely find something useful. Its also a fun place to visit to see handmade and modern crafts with local and modern styles.
This shop sells ethically and locally made, bags, clothes and souvenirs.
