Tiles

 

The bodj fair trade flooring and hearth project supports a group of 5 families living on the banks of the Mekong river just outside Phnom Penh.

 

These terracotta tiles are entirely handmade using clay dug from the banks of the river, mixed with the ashes of rice husk and then fired out on the open dunes using gleaned brushwood, coconut husk and rice straw. Unlike standard kiln firing this firing technique imparts different colours and unique markings to each tile. A portion of the tiles also feature natural impressions of local flora & fauna - leaf & bird  prints etc.

 

The tiles are availbale in four sizes

Baskets

 

The bodj fair trade basketware initiative supports a number of basket weaving projects on the outskirts of Phnom Penh and in the province of Kratie. A mixture of indigious materials are used from bamboo and rattan to rush and water hyacinth. Age old weaving techniques are used to create a variety of traditional and adapted designs

 

Available in 8 different styles

Ironwork

 

BODJ ironwork products are made by an ironworking initiative based in Phnom Penh. The project trains up a number of young men from disadvantaged backgrounds with the design and fabrication overseen by a British design engineer. Traditional skills are mixed with Khmer inspired designs.
