We had just over 1 day in Hoi An and Tu Chi was able to make me the design of shoes I was dreaming of, and a beautiful custom leather bag! I told the kind and helpful shop owner exactly what I was looking for and she brought it to life in less than 24 hours! Hand made and designed shoes and a tote bag! I was able to hand pick my leather, and tell her what I did and did not want. Amazing! She also has pre made leather goods for sale at very reasonable prices if you need to pick up gifts for yourself or others while in Hoi An. I can’t say enough good things!!

Due to COVID they are not open all the time but I messaged them before I came to town and set up an appointment. They opened their shop for me and were able to copy a leather bag for me in less than 24hrs. The bags are beautiful and well made. Cannot wait to were them around town. Thank you!

I’ve had six bags made here now for myself & family and they’ve all been beautiful. Such high quality but still made super quickly. The owner is so helpful and friendly and offers suggestions of what will/won’t look good. If you bring a picture of a bag you want made they will make an identical one, it’s amazing. I highly recommend coming here!

I ordered a pair of custom black high top boots and I was so pleased with the pair. I showed the owner a picture of my favourite boots at home and she copied them perfectly, fit excellent after one adjustment. I went there because of other great reviews,you will not be disappointed

We visited Hoi an to purchase many leather bags, backpacks, wallets, totes and more! We could not be more satisfied. After searching around, we found that the craftsmanship, leather quality and service were exceptional and the best in the city! They even let us see their workshop! The sisters were so sweet and friendly. They let us choose our own designs, colors and hardware. They got the bags done crazy fast and even had the postal worker come to the shop to ship our stuff home. Incredible experience, and we will be back for sure!

I couldn't exactly give good review for this shop. While they managed to replicate the bag that I asked them to, their craftmanship is very poor. The front part of the bag was not cut properly and not came out as the same size on the sides. Though I chose good leather, the result was near to dissapointment. There are scatches everywhere. They already took my deposit of 50$, so I have no choice but to just pay in full and get my bag. I went to the so called warehouse that the previous reviewer wrote, which is not exactly a warehouse. Just a small house with limited choice of leather. This is a honest review.

If you are looking for a custom order, Tu-Chi bags is hands down your best option. I did a lot of online research, window shopping and enquiries before I settled on Tu-Chi. They were the only place I had confidence in with my specialised order.

I was looking to get a camera bag pack made which would safely house all of my gear. The other stores assured me they could meet the requirements however I could tell they had no idea, they would just respond "yes yes yes" and send it off to the sweat-shop. The other issue was the quality of their bags. First look they all look the same quality but take a look inside and they use cheap lining and dodgy stitching etc.

As a test, I got a simple wallet made which I picked up that afternoon.
After seeing my wallet and my girlfriends bag, I decided to pay the extra money to go with Tu-Chi.

I sat down for probably an hour and talked through the bag concept with them and the way they were able to suggest ways to organise it, I knew these guys were the business. I think they actually enjoyed the challenge, not just another "copy".
They even made a cardboard prototype to test it out and make sure everything would fit. The bags are made in house so you can watch getting it made which really adds to the experience.

It has adjustable velcro padded compartments so it is fully adaptable as my camera gear changes and keeps it safe and secure. The quality is significantly better than the other bags I saw around Hoi An.

Long story short, in the end, the bag was so much better than I ever expected.

The photos will not do it justice but trust me, as a perfectionist, Tu-Chi bags is your only option.

Read about it on the internet and went looking. Had in mind an extra large men's leather holdall. They were closed on Sunday but grabbed them the next. Showed pictures selected the material. It would have cost about 800 usd where I live. The young girl asked for 190 (with no bargaining, a tactic which annoyingly seems to be code word for quality these days). Was promised delivery the next evening.

Next afternoon I was walking past the shop and I heard someone running behind me. She caught up and said she had been looking for me all day and had been to my hotel twice. She had run out of the material I had chosen and couldn't find the exact stuff and wanted to take me to her raw material store to pick. I sat on her bike and picked a material I liked. The store literally had hundreds of thousands of types of leather and it was very hard to make up my mind.

She delivered the product next morning, late but not without a valid reason. It was very very good and pretty much made overnight. I asked how it was possible and she explained that it was low season and work was hard to come by.

In general I found that the stuff displays on the displays in this shop and in hoi an in general to be unimpressive but if you choose the material and give them design and dimension they will do a great job. The more detail you give them (like width of straps etc) the better it is. Don't leave anything to judgment- they don't want you to either.

I was very impressed by service and product and will definitely try again if I go there.

I ordered a leather travel bag just before the big storm hit Hoi An. I had a picture and some written details of the Hugo boss bag I wanted them to use as an inspiration. We picked the leather together, discusses the other details and came to a good price. Please feel free to negotiate a deal. They don't mind. Because of the storm they could not work 1 day. They worked hard to finish it but I have the feeling with 1 extra day the bag (which looks very good) could be 5% better ( some details). We had to leave Hoi An so we agreed that the bag and the shoes (side order was 2 handmade pair of shoes for my girlfriend ) were satisfactory (they are!!) and I paid them with a smile. They deserved it.
Summary: avoid a typhoon and you will get what you want for a good price

I used Tu Chi bags based on reviews from other customers. Placed quite a large order, 5 bags and a pair of shoes. All but one of these had to be made to order. They were made within 24 hours and the craftmanship was beautiful. I would definitely recommend them and would use again. You could possibly get slightly cheaper elsewhere, but I personally wouldn,t risk it.
