One day before I left Cambodia my friend Vannak wanted to take me to where he grew up and show me some places tourist don’t get to see. This woman from a village near the Tonle Sap Lake in central Cambodia spends her days making these fine hand-woven baskets. The work is very meticulous and she is skilled and precise in her craft. You could tell she was very proud of her workmanship. It takes her all day to make one basket.
