K HEMARA NGO has plans to open another silkweaving shop and also start a new restaurant which will serve exotic Khmer delicacies including snakes.
Consultant in Business Development for Khemara Katharine Wardle said: "The shop which will be opening on Sep 18 will sell silk items such as: vests, jackets, blazers, blouses, skirts, trousers, bags, and other handicrafts..."
Wardle said: "About 50 percent of the products are being designed, sewed and weaved by Khemara and another 50 percent are being bought from markets."
She said the NGO was looking to expand on its export markets which already included Italy, Japan, the United States, Holland and India.
Wardle said the restaurant will initially only be open for breakfast and lunch and there would be an emphasis on teaching the staff to be hygienic.
She said the restaurant would serve Cambodian delicacies prepared in a traditional style.
