Sonas is a weaving village located in Cambodia. It consists of 12 women who weave all of our products. Our company, Sonas to America, donates all of our profits back to the weaving village so that they are able to create incomes for these women and give them an opportunity to send their children to college, which is rare in Cambodia. Each purchase makes a positive impact in these women’s lives, and for that we thank you!
