Home & Family is excited to tell you all about its new collaboration with Krama & Co.
Founded by Rebecca Parnham, Krama & Co. is a social enterprise run from Christchurch and Cambodia, which places women at its heart. This is because Rebecca and her Cambodian business partner Nita believe that when you give to a woman, she will give back to her children and extended family, creating a ripple effect that is beneficial to the community as a whole.
‘Krama’ means scarf in Cambodian and is the national symbol of Cambodia; Rebecca and Nita pay a fair price for hand-woven krama from female weavers, and for every krama sold, pay one dollar into a village fund where the krama was made. All profits are donated to charities or put towards random acts of kindness for women in New Zealand and Cambodia.
As a former social worker, Rebecca really understands the value and unique nature of Home & Family’s work. In fact, she loves Home & Family so much that it is currently Krama & Co.’s only New Zealand Charity.
