About Us‘All people in Cambodia gain the power to create opportunities for themselves and others to participate and contribute in all aspects of society.’
The NGO ‘Khmer for Khmer Organisation’ was founded in 2009 by Moeun Phary and Markus Tigges. Their idea was to decrease the dependence on donations in order to guarantee the long-term existence of the educational projects.
OFF TRACK Accessories was founded in 2016 with the support of two fashion designers from Berlin, Germany. Since then, all of the label’s profits flow into KKO’s free sewing vocational training for young Cambodians.
The main material of our OFF TRACK Accessories products are used tubes and tires of trucks, motorcycles and bicycles. We purchase the material from various local dealers who work with tubes and tires from all over the world. It is not rare that Chinese symbols, Thai messages or Cambodian words can be found on our products. Each OFF TRACK accessory is unique in its details.
We try to buy all our materials at local markets in Cambodia to support the community.
Our products are handmade in the small OFF TRACK Accessories atelier outside the center of Siem Reap, in Chreav Village. We respect the nature and love animals. That´s why all our products are vegan
Care tip: All our products can be washed with softener. It is recommended to treat the tube with shoe polish after washing so that it has a radiant effect again.
