Very nice little shop which sells locally made items from recycled banana plant fiber and other repurposed waste (I believe). This shop stands apart from others in Siem Reap, as the quality and design of the products is clearly of a higher caliber. I would recommend anyone visiting Siem Reap visit this shop.

I stumbled upon this stall at the back of the Angkor Night Market and I'm so glad I did. It has purses and wallets made out of banana leaves. Everything is reasonably priced and locally, handmade. Excellent for gifts and souvenirs where your money is directly benefitting the the local people. Highly recommend.
It is also next door to a stall making baby bibs also local and handmade, I don't know the name of it but I recommend supporting them too.

Stopped in this interesting shop filled with products made out of banana paper! They have a giant selection of wallets and money pouches as well as money clips, coasters, cosmetic bags and postcards/note cards to name a few of their items. They have beautiful colors and designs.

The prices are reasonable and the shop is neat, clean and displays the items very well. We bought a coin pouch and some postcards. The postcards are unique and everything here makes for beautiful, lightweight souvenirs to bring home!

I was walking around the old market and found
this beautiful store with an outstanding banana tree🌴🌴

They sold products made out of banana tree trunks, and their designs were truly on point👌🏼

I liked them so much that I bought them not only for myself but also for my family back in the country.
I hope my mother and sisters would love them as much as I do😊
Can’t wait to give them the souvenir!!!

Also they hire local villagers as to provide them another opportunity to make a living. Great business to support:))

We were so happy to stumble on Ashi in the Night Market. We fell in love instantly with the gorgeous designs - so much so that we visited their other location the next day to pick up more.

Great souvenir and nice that we are supporting a neat local initiative.

Note - the main store listed at the address above (7th St) is incorrect. They are now in the old market on the street facing the river.

Unlike the touristic products at the market of Cambodia, the products in Ashi are quite unique with cool design. It is a great place to shop for souvenir and postcards. Not only are the products sustainable to the environment, it can also help the rural people. The staff are very friendly and helpful and we had a great time shopping there!

What a great concept. Various giftware made from banana trees and recycled PET.

The staff are super friendly and very proud of what they are doing...providing jobs to rural people.

I bought a few things as unique gifts for my sister and daughter.

Great business to support

The staff was very kind and explained me about their products.
I am impressed by why they make them. And also they are good designed products that we could feel the nature in Cambodia.

ナイトマーケットをぶらぶらしていて偶然立ち寄ったのですが、作る過程などを店員さんが親切に説明してくれました。
あとから調べると、日本人の方がゴミ山で働く人を減らそうと生み出した事業のようです。
単純に可愛く、カンボジア旅の記念やお土産に最適な商品だと思います!
