Phnom Penh, Cambodia, November 05, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- The non-profit Kearny Alliance (http://www.kearnyalliance.org) has enabled business-to-business websites on Global Sources Online (http://www.globalsources.com) for 21 export suppliers who will be featured in the upcoming Cambodia Sourcing Report: Silk Fashion Accessories.
Each manufacturer’s website offers complete company details plus full-color images of their products, which range from evening and shoulder bags, scarves and jewelry to men’s and women’s blouses, skirts and dresses.
The Kearny Alliance team interviewed senior managers in person to verify all have export experience – a pre-requisite to participate in the program – and offer hand-crafted merchandise made in Cambodia.
Stunning handmade silk fashion accessories – traditional styles, modern influence
“Buyers looking for unique, handcrafted accessories will discover silk products from Cambodia that are truly stunning,” said Alexander Boome, program director of The Kearny Alliance.
“These accessories reflect traditional influences but for the most part express modern design thinking. The price points reflect the hand-made nature of the products – but the flexibility of low minimum order requirements and mixed lots can more than offset this through overall lower cash requirements and potentially less excess stock.”

New sourcing opportunities for buyers, more export sales, more jobs created
The Developing County Export Assistance Program is part of the Kearny Alliance’s Developing County Export Assistance Program. This program aims to assist export suppliers to market to buyers worldwide, and help buyers to source from quality producers across developing Asia.
“Global Sources has generously given each supplier a Marketing Website on Global Sources Online – and the tools to manage their online export marketing,” Boome said. “Plus, it will provide further marketing support when the Cambodia Sourcing Report is published.”
The Kearny Alliance Cambodia project manager, Sokunthy Heng, said: “Every import order that buyers place will not only make these lovely Cambodian products available to buyers in world markets, but also help the thousands of needy people and communities who produce the goods. These range from orphans, landmine and polio victims to the deaf and handicapped.
“The organizations we work with are very focused on meeting buyers’ demands in terms of quality and delivery as they realize that through exports, they can provide sustainable livelihood to skilled workers, giving them confidence and opportunities for themselves and their families.”
