Handmade by genocide survivors in Cambodia to create dignified employment.
Multi-functional and handwoven by artisan weavers in rural Cambodia, this textile can be enjoyed indoors or outdoor. This piece can be used as a beach towel, picnic mat, wraparound, table cloth, or summer scarf.
The thin weave is shockingly absorbent. The entire towel can be rolled into the size of a poncho to save space in packing.
Approximately 51” x 75”, 1.5” long tassels

Collective Humanity assists in the post-genocide rebuild of Cambodia by empowering at-risk communities.
They provide community members with educational and economic opportunities through crafting their beautiful products. They also connect individuals with community support systems.
Currently, Collective Humanity employs over 60 women and gifts over 75 family members access to community support programs. They are working to break cycles of poverty by partnering with female artisans in Cambodia to create demand for their products and help them generate sustainable, consistent, and dignified sources of income.
These twenty practices come from lessons learned from living and working in the community of Thistle Farms for the past twenty-five years. Thistle Farms has grown slowly, but surely, by using these practices. We have tried to distill ancient truths into practical disciplines that can change individuals, communities, and corporate culture.
Enjoy the wisdom from thoughtful leaders, survivors, and advocates. All of the reflections are written by women and men who have learned that together we are stronger, more loving, and better able to handle the joys and sorrows of this world that inevitably come our way. The 92 contributors live in 12 states and 5 countries.
We have learned these practices can transform the mission of companies, inspire religious communities, and change the work of non-profits. The hope is that by using these practices formed from a 21st-century community of survivors, you can be more intentional and consider, once again, how your life can broaden with the depth of love.
Through these practices, you are invited to look again at ancient insights and well-worn words with wisdom from the streets and truth from stories. We want this book to be a gift to you, whether you are reading it from an ivory tower or under the top bunk in a cell. We want it to carry you through your everyday life, to broaden its joys, lessen its sorrows, and console you beyond grief.

I actually don't know how I haven't bought a turkish towel before. It's incredible. Beautiful texture. Perfect size to also work as a cover up. I've made everyone watch the video. Love that it's signed by the artisan. Her name is Net.
