I've been invited to give feedback to all Parsons students, regarding your thesis projects.
Thank you for imagining a way to elevate local crafts in Cambodia, on both a design and market level. Overall, I think it's great that you've considered it in the larger sociopolitical context. You've articulated the problem and your proposed solution very clearly and thoughtfully.
As a point of inspiration, you might want to look into the work of NY-based designer Stephen Burks and his projects in the developing world; he too takes the local global.

Best of luck with your work. I hope you make it to Cambodia and bring Camboo to life! J.
