Pearl River Mart

We discovered Basket of Cambodia about 13 years ago at New York Gift Show, it's called "NOW" now a days. At that time the show was very very big and it's quite a hassle to be selected as an exhibitor, I remembered seeing Basket of Cambodia in "Handmade" or some special section. I was impressed by their display and uniqueness, also the good quality. I don't remember seeing another vendor carrying goods from Cambodia in this kind of scale and quality even today. 
Time sure flies, many of the neighborhood vendors from the gift show"Handmade" section are gone and the show changes a lot, but to my surprise, Basket of Cambodia still there. I had a chance to talk to the owner Tom years ago, he shared his vision and his passion about keep doing business in Cambodia, I think the idea of "trade not aid" should be part of his passion too. Every time I look at the products, I see the beautiful hand and the beautiful people behind it. 
Pearl River has been in business for 47 years, we have seen many importers come and go, very few like Basket of Cambodia, being sustainable and keep the authenticity and quality. This must be a company who is more than a business.

Our business relationship with Basket of Cambodia goes back at least 15 years. What makes it strong is the quality of the product they put out and their commitment to always improving their existing line. I am always amazed at the evolution of their purses. There is always some new bell or whistle to what they produce. Customers come back year after year to see what’s new and to add to their purses – rarely to replace! Tom, Hue and Mia are key players in my success! Thanks to all of you!
