Artisans Angkor products awarded by UnescoIn October 2012, the UNESCO Award of Excellence for Handicrafts in South and Southeast Asia 2012 has been granted to two craft products made by Artisans Angkor. These awards were attributed by an international panel of experts who examined 119 handicraft submissions from South-East Asia and 70 products from South Asia through four criteria: “excellence in production and design, expression of identity, innovation and marketability”.
One of the products which have been awarded is our Cambodian Life/Jungle Chic cushion cover, of which the jury praised the “very fine workmanship on high quality silk, finishing, trendy color combination as well as the depicted theme which is very representative of Cambodia.”
The other product which received an award was the Royal White Elephant cushion cover, which caught the attention of the experts for its “trendy design mixing traditional symbols such as the elephant with modern stripes, the excellent finishing and the very reasonable price”.
By recognizing such characteristics in our craftsmanship, the Unesco is giving Artisans Angkor the great privilege to confirm our quality standards and to raise our international awareness.
