About Bloom

Hi, my friend Diana Saw runs "BLOOM CAFE & BAGS". She's from Singapore and was regional GM, Asia for a publishing MNC. Sick of being a wage slave, she left her job, packed her bags and headed for Cambodia. She now lives in Phnom Penh where she set up a social enterprise called "BLOOM" to provide jobs for Khmers.

She believes regular income provides stability, security and a sense of the future.
I do hope you'll like her bag creations featured here and support a fair-trade business to help Cambodians have a more self-reliant and stable income. And, if you're ever in Phnom Penh, please drop by her cafe for some delectable dishes and a friendly chat :-)
