Founded in 2006 by Jung-Min Han, the Goel artisan community in Cambodia’s Takeo Province is reviving the traditional handicraft heritage that was nearly decimated by the country’s prolonged and tragic civil war. The Goel Collection of clothing, scarves, gifts and toys celebrate exceptional skill and artisanship and highlight the unique beauty of naturally dyed cotton and silk by using dyeing techniques that Han spent months perfecting. What began as a small collective of seven weaving families now encompasses some 150 weaving groups across Cambodia. As Goel’s reach and impact broadens, these ancient weaving and dyeing traditions gain new life through an inspired range of creative products.
Brian Andreas is a writer, painter, sculptor and publisher, and creator of the StoryPeople, mixed media objects initially made from salvaged wood from old homesteads. Andreas’s StoryPeople now “live” in an array of works, from saturated color prints and greeting cards with lyrical drawings and short stories, to nine StoryPeople books. "I like art that admits to being a part of life,” the artist says. “I take moments with family and friends and weave them into stories filled with laughter and music and lunacy.” Andreas’ toys and figures ignite the imagination and invite people of all ages to explore the fabulously creative world where story opens the door to possibility.
