A Charitable Artisan Boutique for Cool Cambodian Wares

Nov 26, 2019

Shinta Mani Hotels and architect/designer Bill Bensley have just opened Shinta Mani’s Shop With A Heart, a boutique specializing in handmade, artisan-crafted items from Cambodian creatives. A trove of local goodies, the boutique’s wares range from jewelry and accessories to collectibles and objets d’art, plus an exclusive collection of one-off denim jackets customized by Bensley designers (from US$500 each). One hundred percent of profits from the boutique go to the Shinta Mani Foundation in support of local community projects.

A second Shop With A Heart opens this month at the Shinta Mani Wild luxury tented camp in the Cardamom Mountains with merch that reflects the rich and eclectic décor of the camp’s tents. Hot items include Burmese elephant opium weights (from US$150–$400) and bracelets upcycled from animal traps reclaimed from the forest. Profits go to the Wildlife Alliance, whose projects include wildlife rescue, rainforest protection and community outreach.
