Cambodian Silk Wedding Accessories from The White Aisle

November 28, 2007 | editorial team

In the midst of the checklists, party favors, color schemes, flowers and fun of wedding planning, sometimes it’s hard to remember that not everyone is as lucky as we are. Rebecca and Dade Sokoloff, owners of the on-line store The White Aisle, have developed a wonderful way for us all to participate in helping those in need while still planning the event of a lifetime. While traveling in Cambodia, Rebecca and Dade came face to face with the reality of life for many young women, sold and trapped as sex trade workers. As a result, they joined forces with a day center in Phnom Penh to open a vocational sewing center. There the girls can learn skills, earn a living and have the opportunity to escape their current situations by using local silks to make wedding related items. 100% of the profits from the sale of these handmade items go directly back to the young women and girls who made them, and they are absolutely beautiful! Visit The White Aisle to see the gorgeous silk sashes, ring pillows and flowers available now, and visit Rebecca and Dade’s personal travel blog to read more about life in Cambodia. Bravo to The White Aisle for using their creativity and caring to help those in need!

  1. Wow! Thanks for sharing, that is great! I love the travel blog. We all need to take a step back once in awhile and think about how good we have it. And then think about how we can help others…. These two should be an inspiration for us all! Thank-You!

  2. How gorgeous! Ditto with what Heather said about how good we have it.   How inspiring of this couple to think of way to make good use of the insane amount of money we spend on weddings.
