Why Trunkh is special ?

Cambodia's first concept shop, trunkh. is a treasure trove of cool, quirky, beautiful and, until now, unsung Khmer eclectica: from rescued carousel animals, upcycled furniture, funky homewares, hand painted shop signs, screen printed sarongs and teatowels, totes, and lovely jewellery, trunkh. celebrates icons of Khmer street culture with gifts, souvenirs and cool stuff we make and find for travellers and locals of all persuasions and budgets.

I'm writing this review because I saw that somebody had been really disappointed with their visit to Trunkh. I'm not connected with Trunkh but I have been in there several times. I wear the cute home made badges on my hand bags. I found my favourite scarf there. They have some beautiful, historic pieces that are far out of my price range but I still enjoy being able to go in and wander around. Perhaps the time I spent working in the provinces (where most of the pieces come from) has given me a warped appreciation of these everyday objects, but I really do think it's worth a look for pretty much anyone visiting Cambodia, regardless of how strong or weak your connection to the country is. It is refreshing to shop somewhere that does not sell the cliche, mass produced (and mostly imported) items that are to be found at Russian and Central markets. Thank you so much to the proprietors - the hard work you put in to sourcing your stock does not go unappreciated!

I wholeheartedly support the positive comments made on Trip Advisor which lead me to drop into this business yesterday. After a tropical couple of hours looking over the Royal Palace I was very pleasantly surprised by the wall of cool air as I stepped into Trunkh and equally pleasantly surprised by the eclectic display of wares inside.This place is not just for locals - I had no problem selecting a handful of items that were not displayed at any of the markets I had seen in the preceding week. All will fit comfortably into my luggage without troubling the scales at the next half dozen airports they will have to pass through. Co-Owner Doug took quite some time out of his obviously busy schedule to chat and give some provenance on the gifts I had chosen. A genuine and interesting gentleman. Trunkh would be a welcome find in any city or tourist destination. The contrast with the other tourist oriented businesses I saw in Phnom Penh makes it an absolute treasure house.

an excellent find in a fascinating and growing part of town, this is a great store. among the quirky contemporary design hybrid pieces are beautiful one-off items such as the hand-painted local and provincial shop signs. these amazing examples of naive / folk art should be snapped up before they cease to exist. indeed trunkh is far more than a funky gift and homewares store, it is a veritable gallery and museum of the rapidly changing recent khmer culture and history. visiting the store several times I even noticed that local khmers themselves are being inspired by the store to realize the beauty in their own makeshift environment.
