Apparels at  Ambre, Siem Reap, Cambodia


Phnom Penh based Romyda Keth is one of Cambodia’s most talented fashion designers. The former dancer creates colorful and dramatic designs for day and evening. She favors vivid colors and body-hugging designs with elaborate hand embroidery on many pieces. With numerous boutiques in Asia now, she has a truly international following. The Indagare Souk has featured her fashions, many of which are one-of-a-kind at shows in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles and Greenwich. Her clothes have been carried at Khmer Attitude in Siem Reap but in 2013 she opened a freestanding boutique not far from the Raffles Grand Hotel d’Angkor. Here she sells her men’s, women’s and children’s line of statement-making fashions.

Statue at Angkor Heritage Gallery, Siem Reap, Cambodia

Angkor Heritage Gallery

If you start hankering for a beautiful Buddha, high-quality lacquerware rice bowl or antique textile to take home with you, as many visitors do, one of the best places to find high-quality Cambodian treasures, both antique and new, is at Angkor Heritage, which has its main Siem Reap outpost in the Raffles Grand Hotel d’Angkor. (The original shop is in Phnom Penh.) Founded by Francois Heymann and Christophe Richard who came to Cambodia in 1994, the gallery showcases the works of master craftsman that the duo have been working with for two decades. The artists work in traditional styles inspired by Angkor to produce what the owners call “contemporary artworks of museum quality.” Other hotels such as the Amansara, Park Hyatt Siem Reap and La Residence d’Angkor carry their some of their treasures as well but the largest selection is here.

Apparels at Eric Raisina - FCC,  Siem Reap, Cambodia

Eric Raisina - FCC

If you don’t have time to visit Eric Raisina’s show-stopper of a main boutique and atelier in the Chamming City on the way to Angkor, he has a small but sleek boutique in the Foreign Correspondent’s Club, which is alongside the river, not far from the Amansara and the Raffles Grand Hotel d’Angkor. Madagascar-born Eric Raisina trained in the Paris ateliers of Yves Saint Laurent and Christian Lacroix, then came as a tourist to Angkor Wat. He fell in love with the silk and the people and decided to stay. You’ll find a great selection of his Technicolor fashion and accessories from colorful, fluffy evening bags woven like those used by local fishermen to hold the day’s catch, tie-dye silk blouses, and his signature flowing silk scarves. This shop is a tease but for the greatest range of products head to his main shop and even visit the workrooms upstairs.

Khmer Attitude / Galerie Cambodge

These two adjacent boutiques, curated by Nathalie Saphon Ridel the stylish owner of Maison Polanka, has attracted the attention of such visitors as Hillary Clinton (on her visit to Cambodia as Secretary of State). Surely part of the appeal is the fair-trade values at Gallery Cambodge, where all items originate in workshops that only use eco-friendly materials and techniques. The look here is global nomad, from the Panama hats and bamboo sunglasses down to the sustainable leather flip-flops. Next door, Khmer Attitude takes its inspiration from the swinging ‘60s, with festive Khmer silk cocktail dresses by Phnom Penh-based designer Romyda Keth of Ambre in bold, beautiful hues and shimmering silver bling things.

Interiors at Louise Loubatieres, Siem Reap, Cambodia

Louise Loubatieres

Louise Loubatieres, a graduate from London’s Royal College of Art, grew up watching her Franco-Vietnamese designer mother working with Indochinese hill tribes. Her eponymous boutique, opened in 2013, is filled with must-have homewares, like white-on-grey bird ikat cushions made by the Goel Community NGO, and Lo-Yuyu ceramics from Prolung Khmer Pottery and Weaving Training Centre. Other objects of desire include brightly colored lacquer bowls and trays, silk-covered, beaded necklaces in a rainbow of vibrant hues (made in the southwestern Takeo region) and organic tie-dye silk scarves. Louise picks up treasures on her travels around Southeast Asia and works with craftsmen to bring a more modern interpretation to traditional crafts so her stock is ever-changing.

Neary Khmer Beauty

This simple silk tailor shop down the street from Louise Loubatieres sells silks and cottons by the meter. The owner will fashion tops and pants from what you choose or you can buy the gorgeous ikat silks for pillows or clothing that you have made at home. It is a shop frequented more by locals than tourists so don’t expect the staff to speak English. Note that the ikat silk weaves are not antique but new and soften with washing.

Interiors at Theam’s House, Siem Reap, Cambodia

Theam’s House

Raised in France, Theam returned to Cambodia to run Artisans d’Angkor, the government crafts center, before leaving to concentrate on his paintings (they sell for serious prices in local galleries). He also started an artisan training initiative. Young Khmer come here from the surrounding villages and learn to craft brightly lacquered ceramic elephants, bunnies and water buffaloes that make some of Siem Reap’s most charming souvenirs. The front series of rooms feature his iconic lacquerware designs as well as housewares like wooden tea spoons with bright lacquered handles, woven placemats in a range of colors, woven cotton and silk scarves and great carved and sandstone Buddha heads and elephant sculptures. Plan to hang out awhile in Theam's palm-fringed wooden house, browsing through rooms filled with Khmer sculpture, textiles, bronze and silver artisanal products. In the back rooms, you can visit the artisans at work who carve, paint, polish and lacquer on the premises. Indagare members can contact the Bookings Team to arrange a private visit or cocktail reception in the charming space.
