“Beautiful quilts made by local women”
Reviewed January 19, 2013

Mekong Quilts sells beautiful, well priced quilts (works or art) made by local women. The shop is really easy to find (close to the night markets and pub street) and has a large selection of quilts and other smaller handmade items. The helpful, friendly staff are happy to show you the quilts they have on display on a bed (so you can see the detail) and they have a brochure with additional designs as well. They are able to package the items really small so they are easier to travel with. Beautiful quilts and the money goes back to the talented quilters :-)

“Great store supporting local women gaining economic independence”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

We visited and bought 2 beautiful quilts at this store near Pub street in Siem Reap. It is a warm and friendly place to visit and the knowledge that the purchases are helping those that are helping themselves makes the purchases even more enriching. Come help support a great cause and get a great quilt in the process (they wrap it up super tight so that it is easy to transport a plane).

“Gorgeous quilts, great styling, nice smaller gifts as well..”
Reviewed December 9, 2012

Though you might think a tropical country would be the last place to find smartly styled, impeccably tailored quilts, Mekong Quilts will change your mind in a nanosecond. When we visited in November, they had many Christmas gift items (yes, in a Buddhist country) as well as their exquisite quilts. Great value, superb quality, shipping available. Some of the designs were brilliant, creative and original. This is one place that creativity is given free reign, and with expert styling, and an eye to color, you'll find yourself creating a need to have one of their smart pieces.

“Wonderful quilts and service”
Reviewed November 28, 2012

Visited this shop as recommended by friends and was so impressed with the quality of the quilts and the friendly service. The prices are very reasonable for this level quality quilting and they had a fantastic selection and even offered a made to order service they could ship back to the uk.
I bought a gorgeous baby blanket and they wrapped it up in a tiny package to ease with carrying back with me. Also very nice to know that you are supporting local workers by buying. Do not miss this shop and if you like me end up wishing you had bought more visit their website as you can order through there.

“Beautiful quilts at very reasonable price”
Reviewed November 14, 2012

We were in Siem Reap for 3 days to see the temples and also dp some shopping. We had known about this shop from TA. The quaility of the quilts was really good. At the colours were so vibrant. They have a wide range of quilted products, including aprons and other soft products. They can be made to order as well, and sent on.
I'm really happy with the quaility of the items I bought from here. There is also another branch in Phoem Phem, but this is smaller, although has the same quaility.
Worth visiting
