Sustainably Sewn Clothing is here to Stay
AN ETHICAL CLOTHING LINE BY LANDMINE DESIGN
"DAI" (pronounced day) is the Khmer word for "sew" and is the identifying name for our latest Landmine Design location and program now producing a collection of clothing ethically sewn by four women learning and demonstrating the value of hope, dignity, and empowerment.
So Thy had worked from her home in Poipet sewing Landmine Design jewelry bags since 2016, around the time when her husband was killed in a tragic accident. This Winter, we were finally able to hire So Thy for full-time work with Landmine Design when we expanded our program location to Poipet, Cambodia. So Thy generously offered her home to be the program location and workspace for "LMD Dai". So Thy, along with three other women: Chan Sooun, Chai Kea, and Sarath now work together to receive full-time pay and educational programming. LMD DAI is now under the leadership of manager Kosal, who continues in our original Minefield Village location as Assistant Location Manager and is also now the manager of LMD Dai.
Employment at the LMD Dai location offers suitable hours that allow each Artisan to practice her sewing and business skills, receive a full-time wage, and stay at home to take care of her family. It also allows us to offer you a new range of ethical products, starting with a variety of long and short Kimonos for the Spring and Summer seasons.
We hope you enjoy these limited edition colors and patterns and wear them as a reminder of the hope sewn into the fabric by women now empowered to break a cycle of poverty in Cambodia.
EACH DESIGN A STUNNING REMINDER OF NEW LIFE THAT BLOOMS WHEN A WOMAN IS WATERED WITH RELENTLESS HOPE.
