Krama means “scarf” in Khmer. This is the traditional ancestral scarf worn by Cambodians. Steeped in history and culture, it is indeed a sign of belonging to the Cambodian people. It is always made of cotton or silk, and it must have a checkered pattern and fringes. Its uses are multiple, ranging from protection from the sun, carrying infants, serving as a belt, or even as a weapon in the Khmer martial arts!
Krama Heritage scarves are made in Cambodia, in quality partner workshops, and they bring a decent salary to those who make them. Thus, Krama Heritage practices fair trade. Cotton comes from Malaysia and China, while silk comes from Vietnam. Labels, metal parts and bamboo boxes are also made in Cambodia.
The weavers participate in the development of patterns, in the choice of colors and materials. They hide behind each krama and are happy to contribute to their export. Krama Heritage scarves represent a responsible and humanist fashion.
