I did the copper workshop with Vibol and Haystome. I loved it so much I went twice! There are so many reasons why the experience with Haystome is so special, their team is helpful and friendly, the classes are intimate, the craft is interesting and you couldn’t get this experience any other way. The best thing about it is meeting the artist, Vibol is so passionate about copper carving and keeping this traditional skill alive. Plus, the Haystome team were on hand to translate. Highly recommend and makes a great gift for someone!

Meet the Artisan

“Hello everyone, I am Sivath. Let the taste of liquor mark a golden life in your journey.”

Sombai is a liqueur made in Siem Reap which is available in a range of 8 flavours and offered in 4 different bottle sizes. The production process is natural using the infusion of fruits and spices to give the flavour to the alcoholic base following an old Cambodian tradition. These are pretty hand-painted bottles that are also nicely decorated, making unique and original souvenirs of Siem Reap, Angkor temples and the surrounding area. From its infusion, production to its decoration, this is a gift product made in Siem Reap from start to finish. Sivath stated, “The main idea behind Sombai was to provide a product that is both beautiful and tasty. It is an old dream that we made come true”.
