» Welcome to AAC Cambodia

 

Cambodia is renowned for its rich history and cultural heritage, which are reflected through the Angkor Temples. This same beauty is also captured within the traditional arts and crafts forms that have been passed down the generations within Cambodian society.


The advent of the Khmer Rouge threatened to destroy the once prosperous traditions of weaving, woodcarving, pottery and handicraft production, but these art forms are now making a comeback, with groups of often-disadvantaged Cambodians rediscovering how to create handicrafts that combine traditional techniques with modern, attractive designs.
