What is upcycled fabric?

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.

 

CWSG in Phnom Penh, Cambodia

CWSG (Cambodia Women’s Support Group) is a group of women in Phnom Penh, skilled in sewing, embroidery and design. The group was founded by Ky Kanary in 2014, with the purpose of providing the women in the group with a source of income from selling different kinds of beautiful, handmade products. Some of the women are skilled in sewing, while others excel in embroidery and design, and when developing new products to sell, they try to make the best use of the inherent talent in the group.
