  • The Mekong quilts is a enterprise to help the women of Cambodia. It is a good concept and some of their stuff is good, we felt it was way over priced. The things they were selling for $50 were really not worth it, even when we considered the social cause aspect. I think they should reprice their stuff.
  • A nice place to drop by, with some interesting quilts, pillow cases and throws. Prices were a little steep though it is for a good cause.
  • Shopping with a difference: the social difference. Their products are very well finished and they have a rest sense of style for all decorations. Indigo dyed products were my favourites but don't miss those items with materials from ethnic tribes from the north of the Mekong delta. This business promotes women empowerment by giving them the opportunity of employment that otherwise wouldn't happen. I love the philosophy behind it as well as their end products.
  • We found this place in the lonley plant Cambodia guide. It is across the road from the 'triangle restaurant' under a neon sign that is red and says 'night market'. If you are coming from pub street, turn right at the '24/7 minimart', and walk about 50m look to your left. They do have high quality products as we expected.
