“Intricate and exquisite” are the delicate handicrafts from one small village in NW Cambodia, Krabyriel, where basket-weaving has long been a tradition passed down from mother to daughter, and where artisans incorporate a blend of rattan, bamboo, and sugar palm into their woven ware.
“Raw” is a word that better describes the rattan-ware indispensable to market vendors, which is mass-produced in other villages like Kok Dong, Kantrok, and Kok Chan, on the outskirts of Siem Reap; and exported to Thailand, or used to transport and trade most of the perishable products found in local markets.
