Krama is one of the traditional forms of clothes in my country. Krama is a symbol of Cambodia and represents its legacy. Krama is engaged in continuing this legacy for generations all over the world. We can use it in many ways, it’s also interesting and very nice to all men and women. All of our kramas are handmade by Khmer mostly at Siem Reap.
