About Us

Cambodia Knits is a social enterprise working with marginalized communities near Phnom Penh. Our goal is to produce beautiful, high quality and unique hand knit products while providing fair and flexible employment opportunities.

CK believes that employment is an empowering way out of poverty for marginalized communities, especially when that employment is fairly paid and works within the constraints communities face. For this reason we provide paid training in knitting skills and travel to the communities regularly to collect finished products. We also work in cooperation with NGOs that are supporting the communities where we employ staff, coordinating activities and sharing information.

As a social enterprise, we put our profits into communities because we believe that putting people ahead of profit results in a great product!
