Tonlé - Phnom Vest - Vests
Chic and eco-friendly - our phnom vest is named after the Khmer word for mountain. This unique fabric is hand woven from tiny scraps of remnant fabric with a tapestry style triangle pattern. This vest comes in one size for its drapey nature and looks fantastic on a range of body types. Pairs well with jeans or a dress.

This garment is handwoven and naturally dyed - to prolong it's life please care for it by hand-washing in cold water with ph neutral detergents. (Gentle shampoo actually works well!) At tonlé we only use 100% non-toxic and plant based dyes, and they are color fast when cared for properly, but using harsh chemical may cause colors to fade. Hang dry in the shade. This garment can be ironed with a warm iron and steam, but does not usually need it.
At Tonlé, we see fashion differently from the way it's made to the way it's worn. We see it as encouraging the unique in everyone who touches our clothing, from maker to wearer.
Our process starts with scrap waste sourced from mass clothing manufacturers. Using every last thread, we create handmade clothing and accessories signed by their Cambodian makers.
Our family of employees is made up of individuals with spirit, drive and dreams. Together, we've built a supportive environment where everyone expresses themselves freely, learns new skills, and gains confidence in what they do.
We believe style is more than what you wear - it's what you choose to be a part of. When you buy Tonlé, you're buying one-of-a-kind clothes that carry meaning across cultures and continents.
Tonlé. Every thread matters.
