Product Feature of the Week: Sak Saum Wallets

Everyone needs a cute and functional place to keep their change, credit cards, and cash on the go. If you're like me, you need a wallet with enough space to accommodate far more gift cards, membership cards, and business cards than you really need. This silk Sak Saum Wallet is the perfect place to put all those cards with four credit card spaces and five full length pockets to hold cash, coupons, change, and receipts. Not only will it hold all your "buy ten, get one free" cards, in white, red, and blue with flower designs, it is a stylish way to keep all your important on the go necessities organized and easily accessible.

 

Sak Saum, the Khmer word for dignity, is the name of this project that helps rescue, rehabilitate, and restore human trafficking victims in Cambodia. Each year, Sak Saum trains 12 girls in sustainable business, and they now have over 50 men and women in a full time vocational training center. Sak Saum provides food, medical and dental care, transportation, fair trade salaries, education, and housing as needed. They also provide women with opportunities to take English language courses and literacy classes in the official Cambodian language. Through Sak Saum, vulnerable and exploited women in the Phnom Penh and Saang District are trained in sewing, design, and organization. With these skills, they craft unique wallets from primarily reclaimed cloth, turning abandoned items into something beautiful. So when you are looking for a new wallet, why not choose one that not only has the organized space you need, but is a fashionable addition to your every day outings and helps to provide women in Cambodia with the skills they need to provide for a great future.
