Sang Leng Sewing Machines

Sewing machine blog.jpgThese sewing machines are just gorgeous!!!! My grandmother must have had one of these, before my grandfather bought her an electrical sewing machine. Well, maybe not a Sang Leng with what seems to be a painting of a wonderful golden dragon on it, but a decent European Elna, as those must have been the times before imports from China. These sewing machines didn’t do patterns and stitches all by their own (or by some chip logic). They just sewed, but they were good at this.
They just sew now in Cambodia, operated by four families in the Banteay Srej District, as part of our donation scheme. Thanks a lot, Chitra, for the news!
