Kambuja - clothes designed for you

Occasionally, I encounter a shop or outlet that deserves a heads-up to the public at large. Today's hot tip is....if you are visiting Phnom Penh, make sure you call into the unique collection of women's clothes at Kambuja - located at 165 Ang Duong Boulevard, a couple of blocks from Wat Phnom. Kulikar Sotho and her team of Dany and Dona, host a unique blend of western designs and eastern mystique with sublime silks, light linen and contemporary cotton with elegent embroidery, drawing inspiration from the delicate flower frangipani, known throughout the region as kambuja.

The shop is set in the ground floor of an elegant colonial-era building just off Norodom Boulevard. They also host a popular range of accessories such as handbags, hats and hand-embroidered belts and scarves. Everything is tailor-made and adjusted to the individual customer's needs. Its a gorgeous oasis from the heat and frantic pace of the city's streets as you soak up some of Kulikar's own designs and a stunning collection that will leave you wanting more.
