Translated from Sanskrit, MANAVA means humankind. It is a group that supports female artisans by creating exclusive, artisanal rattan products that strengthen the international reputation of Cambodia's creative industries. They work with a rattan palm material called "pdau" and willow grass called "la paek". This palm and grass are fast growing and found throughout Cambodia. Because of the importance of sustainable harvests, they carefully limit what they reap in order to provide for continued future growth season after season. With MANAVA, the artisans know their opinion matters and that they can work in a fair environment where companionship, crafts, and happiness flourish.
