Cambodian "Do-Good-Rags" (silk head scarves for Cambodian Relief)

What an incredible response we’ve had from the Alchemy audience in support of our “Do Good” silk scarves.  Alchemy offers our deepest gratitude to those of you who have contributed to our emergency relief campaign to support a very special village in Cambodia, where Alchemy’s Creative Director Gina Wilde has been developing work centered in indigenous textiles. Lotus Gina recently returned from Lake Kamping Puy, where she was able to donate in person monies raised for The Lotus Center relief. She and her colleagues met with the village chief, and a decision was made to dedicate the scarf proceeds to helping local families grow lotus. We leased hectors of water and began planting new lotus, which was then given to several families to cultivate as their own crop, using every part of the plant, some of which is edible and some of which can be spun into yarn. Through the generous contributions of our Alchemy audience, we are helping the people of this beautiful village navigate toward a sustainable livelihood, keeping the family structure intact and providing much-needed jobs.

Our silk scarves are still available, and Gina will continue to paint them in any Alchemy colors – so give us a ring or drop a line if you would like to support our continued campaign to serve the community of Lake Kamping Puy, Cambodia.

From everyone at Alchemy Yarns, our most sincere thank you for making a true difference.
