Started in 2012, Cambolac, a Cambodian Social Business, in producing and selling high quality souvenirs, brings a simple yet efficient way of chaining local poverty to booming tourism.
Please come visit our LACQUER WORKSHOP and showroom in the center of Siem Reap where you will discover the fine art of lacquering.
