Challenge Entries

basik 855 grew out of a chance encounter between two entrepreneurs (one American and one Cambodian) and the friendship they forged.

In three years, we have grown from a team of 6 artisans working in their own homes to a weaving center with 46 full-time employees, including a team of Cambodian textile designers. 96% of our full-time staff is Cambodian.

All of our finished products are sewn by like-minded social enterprises, which allow us to financially support Friends-International, Stop Start and other Cambodian seamstresses and tailors in Phnom Penh.
