About
Basically, Vietnam has many attractions but most of them just for sight-seeing. In there, You could make heaps of leather stuffs by yourself with a reasonable price. If you have time and prefer experiencing activities, DIY Box is an ideal place for you in Hanoi. Located in a small alley with cozy atmosphere near the historical vestiges B-52 wreckage. From DIY Box, you can take 10 minutes by motor-bike or taxi to Hoan Kiem Lake – the heart of Hanoi, 5 minutes by steps to Vietnam Military history museum of fighter plane or 10 minutes to Ho Chi Minh museum, eventful part of Doi Can street where you can find trully Vietnamese street foods, coffee and feel the heartbeat of Hanoi. Being convenient are ensured. Started to learn handmade leather by my-self from 2013, I came to the realization that my workshop was an place where everyone can come & have experience, to know or understanding how does artisan make excellent handicrafts. Hope you come and enjoy my leather workshop.

Better alternative to street walking but the coffee has stopped!??
Nov 2019 • Friends
Like the rest of trippers here, read and decided to give DIY leather making a shot. I made a mistake in asking for adding a layer of credit card/compartment to one of their sample long purse (I meant to make for my wife). It turns out to be bad decision and took 4.5 hours instead of the 2 hours (my friend did a simple purse in that time). I had to work "overtime" as the single hole punch was a pain (the craftman did not give me the multi hole punch till Lan who is nice to recommend) so is the sewing for a long purse (see the pic for number of holes). The non english speaking craft man wasn't helpful and did not cut the additional layer to right size resulting in unable to sew it to main purse hence the delay.
And the coffee???

Amazing experience!

It’s a petty little store inside Hanoi craft house. Thia was my very very first time I’ve done a leather thing by myself. I had thought that it would be very hard but staff helped me a lot and I could done my cardholder very well. My friends did a small case and a long wallet. We were really interested in making our own things. Staff is really friendly n lovely. They showed us everything about leather. I love them so muchhhh. The most amazing experience I’ve had in Vietnam. I will come back DIY Box when I have a chance to visit Hanoi again.

Excellent Leatherwork workshop!
Dec 2018 • Solo
Really excellent experience, which I am very glad I found and booked. If you are interested in handmade leather goods and coffee then this is your place! April and Nan were great at guiding me through the process of making my first handbag. I was practically the only one in the shop, so I had a very hands-on experience. Something I wish could be found in many other places — thanks for the help and support, I'm so happy with the result (pictures attached)! Highly recommend booking this workshop while in Hanoi. Ana

So fun!
Feb 2019 • Couples
We strolled up at the workshop without booking which was fine as they room for us which was great.
We made a wallet and a luggage tag, it was great choosing the leather, thread, stamp etc!
Would really recommend although it’s a little pricey.
The girls working there are so nice and made us feel so welcome, one of the reasons we loved this place so much!

My favourite part of my trip
Jul 2018 • Couples
This was quite possibly one of the most fun days for me in Vietnam. Learned how to make a passport holder with leather. The instructor was really nice and patient. The coffee was really good. The tools and materials were so neatly organised. It was a lot of fun. Only downside was the place was quite hot. If you like to DIY, definitely check out this place. It’s a lot of fun.

Simply awesome experience
Jan 2019 • Solo
We made our own leather wallet and it was a very calming experience. You have to invest at least a couple of hours there to immerse in the process. I ordered a messenger bag for myself made to my specification. They delivered it in 4 days considering it was handmade. Look for Dung and April - they are simply the best.

Great way to unwind from city chaos!
Oct 2018 • Couples
We sprung a random visit here and they were great, the lady helping us talked with us genuinely and openly about her life, Vietnamese lifestyle and asked about ours... the conversation was just as great as the experience of making our own holiday wallet. Thank you so much for a lovely afternoon and fab coffee.

This place is wonderful. Made a lot of things for myself and family with the woman who led the workshop. The workshop is modern and funky and very comfortable. Well done DIY Box ❤️

Awesome DIY experience
May 2018 • Couples
We found this experience initially on Airbnb and it turns out to be a great DIY experience. The staff is very friendly and will give you all the help you need to make whatever you want. They have a selection of sample product in the shop that you can learn to make but I think you can also bring in your own design. They also offer discount if you make multiple things. I made 2 bracelets and it was a lot of fun!
