There are a million places to shop for textile items--bags, table runners, cushion covers, pencil cases, etc--in Hanoi. But this place is unique with designs, patterns and colors that you don't see anywhere else. If I didn't have a closet packed with bags, I could easily have walked out with a dozen new large and small items. Highly recommend it,... More

Great store, good quality and prices are better then some of the store in the old quarter. It's also nice that they share the information about the tribes crafts and give back to the community. Service isn't the greatest but not bad.

This store offers a excellent range of hand-made crafts from Vietnam and the toughest decision was choosing what to buy. I was able to buy gifts for my family and I'm sure they will love what I chose. (If not - I guess I've got myself 5 new handbags....)

I completely disagree with the last reviewer who though this was the same stuff found elsewhere in the old quarter! This shop is stocked with high-quality scarves, purses and other textiles that I saw nowhere else during my visit. The prices were reasonable also. If you are going to the Temple of Literature, stop here as it's just across the... More

Another victim of TripAdvisor hype. Just a typical shop where you can find all the items in old Quarter at cheaper price .

This was the only shop where we purchased anything in Hanoi. Large selection of Vietnamese souvenirs - we helped to deplete their stock!! I would certainly return to buy more given half the chance.

Craft link near the Literature Museum is bigger than the one near the Ethnology Museum. If you go there you can also visit the Indigo Store which is just a few shops down. It is also excellent with really lovely staff. They will show you the dying process for their batik upstairs using only natural plant materials. Like Craft link... More

This is a non-profit Vietamese shop that helps the people receive a fair wage for their handicrafts. Very nice selection of purses, eye glass cases (some beaded) and so much more.
