Free & open to the public, this event will be held on the street in front of Shinta Mani Hotel Siem Reap on the first Saturday of every month from 3-9pm.

Well Made In Cambodia will bring together the most exciting examples of craftsmanship in Cambodia today. Internationally recognized artisans and designers participating include Eric Raisina Haute Texture, Theam’s House, Saarti Candles, Eric Stocker Laque & Textures, Saomao, Grace Gecko Creations and more.

Those who attend Well Made In Cambodia will have the opportunity to purchase fine quality artisanal products & luxury goods that redefine what it means to be made in Cambodia today. Each item for sale has been produced by a new generation of talented Cambodians. The greatest benefit of Well Made In Cambodia will be to these Cambodians, including many in need, through both direct income and skills development. Live entertainment, artist workshops and wholesome food will round out the market’s festive & diverse offerings.

Footsteps from the tranquil riverfront, Shinta Mani Hotel Siem Reap offers authentic Khmer hospitality in 39 contemporary guestrooms and public spaces designed by renowned architect Bill Bensley who took inspiration from the nearby temples of Angkor Wat. Guest stays and private donations fund The Shinta Mani Foundation, a locally registered not for profit that supports the community through small business startup loans and healthcare programs as well as through the Development Center. This purpose built facility within the hotel’s leafy grounds provides free
hospitality training to less fortunate members of the Siem Reap community. Shinta Mani and the Shinta Mani Foundation are proud to support Well Made In Cambodia as an extension of our community outreach.
