Welcome to the exclusive retail site for Saraye "Tatami Style" Purses, designed, manufactured and distributed by our parent company Baskets of Cambodia
Baskets of Cambodia
, formed in 1996 in war-torn Cambodia, in villages surrounding the famous temples of Angkor Watt. In 2000 we expanded our operation to the outskirts of Phnom Penh in order to develop a unique line of purses, a line that incorporated traditional weaving and western style to create an entirely distinct look in purses. We started with a poor family of 8 headed by a single woman. Then she was sick and in need. Now she is healthy. Her daughters still sew and her son helps in the development of new styles. In the last 8 years Baskets of Cambodia
has introduced this market to the world with innovations and new styles, and we now employ over 200 makers. You may see cheap (not inexpensive) copies of our original ideas, but you won't find better quality products inside and out. BOC is a company that is determined to deliver ever expanding wages back to the deserving people of Cambodia. We currently pay more than any producer we know of. The current modest salaries we support are consistently 2-3 what is considered to be "fair trade", and include other benefits as well.
