Meet The Makers: Morokot from Peace Shirts

Meet The Makers Peace Shirts

Name: Phal Keomorokot

Where are you from: I am a Cambodian living in Siem Reap province.

Tell us about your favourite place in Siem Reap: Angkor Wat Temple, which is a soul of Cambodia.

When did you launch Peace Shirts: February 2019

What’s the story or inspiration behind your brand: Peace Shirts supports both the Cambodia Peace Gallery in Battambang and the Green Orange Village employment project. The former is an education project for young Cambodians teaching them about the history post-Paris peace Agreement and how the Cambodian people have rebuilt their country. It is a source of positive nationalism. The latter is a small tourist venture which generates employment for Cambodians in
Ksach Pol village adjacent to the Cambodia Peace Gallery.

Where does the name Peace Shirts come from: We work and promote peace. Peace t-shirts are a combination of our work for peace, creativity, and passion.

Out of all your products, which one is your favourite and why: I like “Made in Cambodia Onesie” which is a unique design with good printing on good cotton T-shirt. The Made in Cambodia Onesie reminds me of the priceless memories when my son was just born and wore it.

What’s the plan for the next year for Peace Shirts: We are planning to have more design and expand our sales in Cambodia.

Name one thing you cannot find in Cambodia: Kiwi Plant is the thing that I cannot find in Cambodia.

If you could have any product from the SATU collection (other than your own), what would it be: Collapsible Coffee Cup

What was the last gift you gave someone: I gave a New Born Singlet “Made in Cambodia” to a baby boy that’s my last gift.

After answering these questions, you walk outside and find $1,000 on your doorstep. What would you spend it on: If I find $1,000 on my doorstep I will donation 30% to Children Hospital, 30% to NGO who’s working for Peace, and the rest is expand our work.
