I came across this handicraft shop as recommended by the hotel we were staying in. It is about 25 mins walk from the old quarter. This little shop has two levels and is packed full of great handmade textile work, such as bags, scarfs, jewerly, purses, cushions and a number of other things. It is a not-for-profit organisation, so the... More

Happened to go into this shop at the museum of Ethnology. What a great find. They also have a store location, if you miss the one at the museum. The choice of hand crafted goods is excellent. The prices are also very reasonable. Good place to find those unique items for yourself and others.

Craft Link is a not-for-profit organisation selling amazing handicraft products and supporting thereby small handicraft producers from ethnic minorities or Hanoi street children. Prices are very reasonable compared to the shops in the old quarter and have a higher quality.

It is one of the few shopping places in Hanoi, where you can be sure, that you purchase locally produced craft. The non profit organisation supports fair trade and work with the local tribes. They sell wonderful woodwork, laquer paintings, ceramics, textiles and clothes. Have a look at the homepage: www.craft-link.com.vn. You will not only take great souveniers home, but... More

Love the concept of this store, ensuring the arts are promoted in the smaller villages and bringing them all together under one roof. Bought so many beautiful bags here and scarves. Quality items I didn't see elsewhere.

Craft Link is a great endeavour. It brings the handicrafts of Vietnam's ethnic minorities to you. Staff are friendly. The prices are the same or better than in the Hanoi Old Quarter, but you'll find items not seen in the Old Quarter. Also makes a nice stop if you're going to the Temple if Literature (across the road) or KOTO... More

They have two stores, a block apart. One is pretty small yet the other is two stories with several rooms, one accessible off a balcony. The latter is where we found fabulous silk products - pillow cushions and purses. Oh, may be none left as we went a bit overboard!!!

I sought out this shop due to the TA reviews, but after missioning there I bought nothing! And I'm a shopping addict! Nothing was to my taste, only some scarves, pencil cases and bags, plus a couple of racks of clothing. All the material was quite bright and garish, and overpriced.
