About Somaly Hay & Company
My name is Somaly Hay, I came to the United States as a refugee from Cambodia.
I was a Cambodian Royal court dancer before more than half of my family including my parents, died in the communist Khmer killing field’s war.
For over 30 years of performing and teaching dance, took its toll on my knees and prompted me to seek out new ventures. In addition to my God-given talent as a choreographer, now I am busy writing books, designing handbags; t-shirts; jewelry and other related items.
I am fortunate to be able to have my products made in Cambodia and Vietnam, providing jobs for those who have had less opportunity than I have had. Some of the hardware and materials I use are from neighbor countries to Cambodia and are very beautiful.
I am very grateful for the opportunities and freedom that America has given me.
