Even though the quilts are made by local women and are very nice to look at at, I don't think the prices are justified.

Such patchwork quilts, also made by local women, are comparatively much cheaper in India, where I come from. Hence, to me the prices at Mekong Quilts were too high.

We did go there after reading the reviews here on TripAdvisor but were disappointed both by the range on display and the prices.

Work brings me to Cambodia annually. I have been following Mekong Quilts for a few years, but never able to check it out up close. Finally, we made it to their shop this year and bought two items - a baby blanket for a pregnant family member and a Xmas tree skirt for ourselves. We couldn't be happier with the quality and color spectrum. We're not giving the blanket until the baby shower in a few months, but I'm so excited to hand this over to someone else soon. It's just beautiful.

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 :-)

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).

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.
