About

Cambodia Knits (CK) is a social enterprise working with marginalized communities in Cambodia. Our goal is to produce beautiful, high quality and unique hand-made products while providing fair and flexible employment opportunities.

We have trained hundreds of women (and a handful of men) to knit and crochet, giving them opportunities to work from home. We currently have over 200 people on our roster, many of whom depend on their earnings from us. This year, we had been planning to launch our Patreon page to ask for your support in our training programs, as 2020 was going to be the year we grew our home-based production. However, as global reality continues to change dramatically each day, we are instead now asking for your support to keep our knitters working over the coming weeks (and possibly months).



Since we made the difficult decision to send our headquarters team to work from home, we are focusing all our efforts and energy on how to sustain our business. Keeping up home-based production is not just about keeping our business viable, it’s about keeping our communities from falling back into poverty. We don't want to stop our producers from making our products because at this crucial time, more than ever, they need an income. This is where you come in!

By becoming a patron, you'll be contributing to our monthly cash flow.
We'll be able to keep our knitters knitting (or crocheting), and cash payments to them flowing, while we build up our stock. When we are on the other side of this pandemic, we can send you your wooly goodies, send them to someone as a gift or donate them to local projects across Cambodia. Totally up to you!

We currently have enough materials to keep production going for the next few months and the space to safely store the finished products. And we have trained, hardworking and committed knitters eager and ready to work. Now we just need a regular cash injection from you, our fans, to keep this ship afloat.

As a social enterprise, we have always invested in our communities because we believe that putting people ahead of profit results in a great product! During these challenging times, we have no interest in profit, but only in the survival of our brand and our knitters.



The uncertainty about the future of the global economy is going to hit our producers especially hard and might tip some of their families back below the poverty line. Even a few dollars a month from each of our community of patrons can help us support them to stay afloat with dignity. Join our Global Knitting Circle and help us keep the needles clacking away. 

Some fine print:
  • Donations of products to schools or other projects and causes in Cambodia will be made every six months. We have a great network in Cambodia and have identified a number of fabulous places where we can direct donations on your behalf.
  • We’ve currently suspended international orders as we are not able to guarantee they will arrive via global mail systems, some of which are currently encountering service disruptions
