Craft Peace Café (Banteay Prieb Production)

Who we are

Everything for peace

Originally, Banteay Prieb (“Center of the Dove” in Khmer) is a vocational training center for Cambodians with physical disabilities wich was founded in Kandal Province in 1991 by Jesuit Refugee Service. Nowadays, about 120 students are involved in a professional training (such as agriculture, mechanics, electronics, sewing, shoe-making and sculpture). Together with a welcoming and cheerful community life, students can recover their self-confidence and their independence and thus, their human dignity and joie de vivre. 

Since 1999, Banteay Prieb has been extended to Banteay Prieb Production, that includes two handicraft workshops (textile and sculpture). These workshops aim at providing jobs for our own graduate, insuring them fair wages and good working conditions and allowing them to gain experience and become proud of their skills (high-quality handicraft).

In Banteay Prieb, we believe that, by giving our artisans a possibility to regain dignity and bring peace to their hearts, we can contribute to all efforts in creating a new peaceful Cambodian society.

What we do

Our workshops (sculpture and textile) employ graduates of Banteay Prieb, providing them with jobs, experience, and opportunities to express themselves through their work. We offer a large variety of fine Cambodian handicraft items.

Beautiful wooden sculptures (mainly traditional Cambodian and religious designs) are admired all over the country and around the world with orders being placed from as far as Korea, Hong Kong, Singapore, Australia, France, Germany, Spain, and the UK. Besides, kromas, bags and our textile collection have become popular items for gifts and souvenirs.
