OUR PARTNER: THE BRAVE COLLECTION
Driven to resurrect the culture of a country torn apart by genocide and human-trafficking, The Brave Collection supports Cambodian craftspeople from underprivileged backgrounds. A country world-renowned for its ancient culture of art and spiritually, Cambodia suffered the loss of one-third of its population and 90% of its artist community under Communist rule. Today that destruction is still evident, most notably amongst the female population where opportunities for employment and education are scarce. To free women from the oppression of sweatshops and the labor of the fields, The Brave Collection is creating self-sustaining business opportunities for Cambodian artisans. And in turn, preserving the Khmer culture by celebrating the work of artists – giving them a chance to showcase their work on an international level. By fostering a community of creativity and empowerment, The Brave Collection is joining the forces for freedom – promoting a global community where change is possible.
