There are actually 2 shops near each othernearby the Temple of Literature. The selection of handmade goods is fairly broad. The quality is good and the prices reasonable. There are also Craftlink items in the Museum Shop at thr Ethnology Museum. A good place to go to get mementos that aren't the usual tourist junk.

This is likely the best shop for Vietnamese products in Hanoi. The price, selection, and quality is outstanding. You cannot find textiles of this quality at this price anywhere. Check out the upstairs rooms for a wide selection. The prices for handmade textiles range from a few dollars to about one hundred dollars.

Highly recommend this shop - and also at the same time visit the Temple of Literature and the Fine Arts Museum, both just nearby. The gallery was beautiful and such a peaceful oasis. If hungry, try KOTO - yummy and another worthy cause.

Craft Link is a Fair Trade organization that has a nice selection of Vietnamese gift items, at reasonable prices. Silk purses and scarves, lacquer bowls, chopsticks, vases, paper items, backpacks and large totes - all are very good quality and come from villages specializing in making them. Part of your payment goes back to the villages. The two shops, right... More

I bought a lot of gifts here...small bags, embroidery, hair ornaments, and scarves. I'd recommend that anyone do their souvenir shopping here. The quality and selection are a lot higher than what you'll find on the street, and their prices are at least lower than the starting prices for the same item (from a street vendor). And in the end,... More

Good location just opposite of the Temple of Literature made our visit very easy. There were even a cafe only a few metres away: we could leave the husbands there, such an important thing to give more time for decent shopping ;-) In the shop there was a nice selection of ethical products with reasonable prices. There was no need... More

They've got a good range of products for a reasonable price. Lots of silk scarfs and handbags. I got a few little bags and purses there to give to friends for gifts

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.
