Red Dirt Road designs are lovingly created by women in their remote Cambodian village from hand loomed, richly textured Cambodian silk. Each item is precisely constructed by hand using a treadle sewing machine and a coal heated iron. Your purchase of these beautiful designs enables these mothers to feed and educate their children while living at home. Before Red Dirt Road, many worked in the oppressive garment factories in the city, rarely seeing their children. All profits of Red Dirt Road are returned to the women.
