Travel Experience

Graines de Cambodge is the creation of Rany Som, a jeweller who uses natural seeds to create jewellery and to decorate silk scarves and handbags. The result is a stunning collection of richly toned colours and designs. With prices as low as $10 for a slender coiled bracelet, this is definitely one you’re not going to want to miss for yourself or for friends.

Responsibility

All of Graines de Cambodge’s products are made naturally from twenty to thirty different kinds of seeds found in Cambodia and Thailand. Necklaces, bracelets and rings, all handmade from natural materials, are designed by Rany and made by her or under her supervision by her staff. She is also concerned about the current situation in Cambodia, which does not offer good professional options for women so she has an all female staff.

Business Case

Rany started her business upon returning to Cambodia after four years in India, where she ran a restaurant and a clothing boutique. After two months perfecting her manufacturing technique, she opened her business at her parents house. Starting from word of mouth, She designs all the jewellery by herself including large statement piece necklace worth of the red carpet, and long pendants made of smooth brown lotus seeds. The selection of seeds is a painstaking process- each one has to be a perfect size, shape and symmetry to fit Som's design as well as collecting seeds locally from the villages.
