Hipstars Are the New Money Belt

PEPY is currently marketing a product of its own design, the Hipstar, in markets around the city of Siem Reap. The Hipstar is a belt-wallet made from the traditional Khmer scarf, the Khroma. This unique product is a fashionable way to carry important items like mobile phones, passports, and cash, but the Hipstar is much more stylish than the traditional money belt. PEPY contracts the production of the Hipstar to M’Lop Tapang, an organization working to support education and skills training to young women in Cambodia. Purchase of a Hipstar supports both PEPY and M’Lop Tapang.

Hipstars can be bought in Cambodia for $10 US, or $15 for international orders to cover shipping costs. They come in various sizes and a wide array of solid colors and traditional patterns. To learn more about the Hipstar, or to order one of your own, please email orders@pepyride.org.
