My favourite place in Cambodia for off-the-rack fuss-free Cambodian silk items - Dresses, blouses, shirts, skirts, cushion covers, scrunchies and so much more. Really good quality silk that can be hand washed and is relatively hardy. Not cheap but it’s a social enterprise so I willingly part with my money for these excellent buys. Highly recommended!

I would highly recommend visiting if you're looking for better quality souvenirs or silks. Artisans d'Angkor offered far and away the best quality silks that we encountered throughout a month long visit to SE Asia.

A shame that money was an object to us, as so many things on offer here appealed.

Seeing what was on offer, we regretted not paying a visit to their factory in Siem Reap so perhaps best that in mind in your holiday planning.

Angkor Artisans is an educational program. Young people are brought in and spend an average of ten years learning the skills necessary to accomplish a wide variety of traditional crafts, including wood carving, stone carving, bronze art and a dozen more. The visit included watching the young people at different stages, and seeing how they progressed. It is a technical school of the highest caliber, and very enjoyable to see how they are trained in keeping the Khmer traditions alive. At the end, there is a shop where beautiful products are available.

If you are searching for the good quality silk raw and fine - the locals say this is the best brand to buy. The prices are quite high though, the silk scarf would be $30-100+. Also has bags, some apparel, several bowls, silver+stones jewelry. To be true, I found the jewelry a bit of a plain design, very simple as for artisan work, the cost was about $50+100$ per item. If you want quality presents and have the budget - I would rather suggest this shop than the markets. I visited the shop near wat Phnom, just across the street from the post office. Monkeys are living on the buildings to the right of the shop.

We had asked our hotel for a recommendation as to where to buy high-quality souvenirs and were shocked at the sight of busloads of tourists being unloaded at the parking lot. We liked the 15min tour of their various workshops. The showroom was squeaky clean and well presented. The goods on offer were good-quality replicas manufactured by local artisans, at elevated prices. So if you are after some souvenir and want to contribute to the local community, Artisans is as good as it gets but ultimately it is mass ware. We did not buy anything by the way.

We had planned a visit here whilst we were in town. A guide is also to you to explain the various workshops to you. Our guides first words were to tell us he was doing the tour to get a tip! I saw larger groups being given a more detailed tour explaining the various processes being used however our guide skipped some sections of the workshop and didn’t explain the ethos of the place, although we knew this from research. The shop at the end has lots of craft for sale and they also offer international shipping. I think we just struck unlucky with our guide based on other reviews

Great place to see the artists at work and to buy their wares. Recommend the tour - by donation - and ask questions about how the artists are selected, it’s quite interesting. All are very talented. There is a store on-site where you can buy their handiwork. The silk is beautiful and very well priced for pure silk - clothing and home decor. Great place for gifts (including for yourself!).

Easy to find, close to the Post Office. Lots of lovely things in there to buy. Items are ethically sourced and purchases benefit the locals.

I can’t add any more to the recent preceding reviews about the ethical origins of the shop and it’s contents except to confirm its principles.

The shop is well presented and well laid out. The gifts are of a high quality and are well made. You would be able to find gifts to suit all pockets here. The staff are friendly and helpful without being overbearing.

Unlike Siem Reap, Phnom Penh does not have many shops selling well designed and well made souvenirs. Many shops gave me that church bazaar feeling, well meant but not things that really delight.

Artisans Angkor was the only shop in town where I found hand made items worth keeping and giving away. And the quality is good: Their silk cushion covers I’ve bought eight years ago (25$ each) are still at their best while those bought at the market (20$ for four) have all fallen apart a long time ago.

Their downtown shop near the post office is the largest one, but there are two other places selling Artisans Angkor products: One is operated by China Duty Free at Naga City Walk, another one is in the airport departure hall (Dufry). At least the one at the airport is considerably more expensive than the post office branch. An item costing 38$ in town was 49$ at the airport.

Staff is cheerful and e-mail enquires are answered promptly.
