  • This has workshops place.and a clean and nice statutes and idols are made and are put up for show and are for sell. There are dresses,accessories, kitchen items,pillows,bedroom accessories, and many more. Good thing is this has lots of items and is very attractive but the sad thing is it is really expensive and not affordable at all. This place is situated in a nice place and is a tourist place and is surrounded by greenery. There is a restaurant at the exit. This place is divided into 3 parts there is a long pathway which will lead to inside stuffs. We get everything there,from a wall painting till a small keychain and chopsticks. The staff has an uniform and are cooperative. There workshops are conducted where they teach how to prepare or make the idols or many handicrafts. On the whole good place to window shop,because of high cost.
  • There's a good variety of handicrafts here. The spaces where they are working on traditional Cambodian crafts is interesting and worth a gander. Prices of the souvenirs in the shop is more expensive than what you would find in the markets, but seems like it's for a good cause.
  • i was so impressed by these artisans, i had the opportunity to see the work that they do up close and personal. the amount of time and dedication that it takes to bring their vision to life is astounding. i have a brand new respect for sculptors, ii was able to try out the different stones that they used and i have to say while you need to be strong to carve, you also need a delicateness about you; i mean one wrong move and it could destroy your work. KUDOS to all the artists.
  • My Husband and I loved visiting Artisans. It was amazing to see the crafts being made right in front of you. They are so skilled and take such pride in their work! It was such a refreshing site after everything else you find in Siem Reap was more than likely made in China.. We didn't even mind paying the higher prices for the crafts, since we knew the work going into them, and the causes the money went to in the community! This is a wonderful place to pick up some great gifts and some beautiful pieces of art to add to your home!
  • High quality, ethically produced stuff. A bit of a tendency towards bland decor products, I think they need to be a bit bolder and more exciting. I liked most the large stone sculptures but they're too heavy to take with you and air freight is expensive.
