A week in Vietnam


We're off for another visit in Vietnam and we'll be there most of the week. We consider ourselves fortunate to be able to go to Vietnam as frequently as we do, and work with the rural people of Vietnam. The Vietnamese are wonderful people. Warm and generous, and prideful in their work. We work directly with the craftspeople that weave the baskets and coil and produce the Lacquerware bowls.


It's always a pleasure seeing our friends Huong, Mai, Mr. Sy and the teams they work with. It's going to be hot and travel isn't always easy, but it is always gratifying and insightful. We have been to Vietnam nearly 20 times and we always come away with a new knowledge and better understanding of the people, their craft, and the Vietnamese culture which we so dearly enjoy.

While not a vacation, it is a gift to be able to proudly work in Vietnam.

More on our return.
