  • $64.00

These elegant Fair Trade Silk Ties are pure silk. Handmade in Cambodia by Khmer Creations they shine and change colour in the light as only pure silk can do. The colours are well chosen with a choice of blue, red, black or purple. The style is fashionably slim with a lining of the matching check cotton fabric. Partnered with a choice of pocket details the combination is elegant and stylish.

These ties are made Cambodia by women who have been exploited either by the Sex Industry or an unregulated Garment Manufacturing Industry. There is no minimum wage in Cambodia and many garment manufacturers moved to Cambodia from Bangladesh when the Bengali Government introduced requirements for safe working conditions and fair wages.
