Our timing for visiting Sapa was unfortunate. The day before we arrived, all of the usual craft sellers in CatCat village had been quarantined due to Covid19 exposure, so we never had a chance to shop the way most tourists do. I was interested in Indigo batik work and was happy to come across this shop on our way back from CatCat. For a small shop they carry a nice variety from small trinkets to special items like hand woven, hand dyed hemp by the yard. Some items might be a bit pricey compared to bargaining in a village, but I was glad that they were open and willing to sell to me. While we shopped a street seller waited for us to buy something from her - I feel for the people here, tourists mostly gone and many of the local business people afraid to be in contact with outsiders because of virus fears - so I bought a small scarf from her also. So patient.

I am greatly interested in art of fabrics. My husband took me for super treking combined with batik workshop from Indigo Cat. We had a scenic walk for about 10 km from Sa Pa to Ta Van village where the sweetest and lovely teacher had showed me the secrets of batik making and indigo. You have to reserve minimum 3 hours for the whole process. It is such a meticulous and complex craft and everyone interested in artisan work and diy will greatly enjoy it. My teacher was very patient and truly applied learning by doing method of educating. I was so satisfied with observing her work, teach and also happy with the effect. Additionally we made a little shopping on the spot. Highly recommend this very unique and rare experience.

My friend from back home loves the colour indigo and I had an intuitive idea that places in Vietnam made beautiful textiles, upon a little research I found Indigo Cat in Sa Pa. It is quality and so pleasing to my heart and soul, I spent a good 45min being among the beauty. I bought gifts for myself and for my friend and family. If you love surrounding yourself with beauty its a must visit :)

If you want to find some great souvenirs from Sapa but don't want to haggle like crazy at the market this is your store!. Indigo Cat has the same beautiful souvenirs at great prices that you can find in the market.

Hello, my name is Ignacio and I visited the store with my father when in Sa Pa. The store had a great variety of products, all fully hand-made by local artisans that work cooperatively. Given the enormous Chinese production of souvenirs, most of tourist get these standarised pieces, affecting local productions and employment. Thus, ancestral tradition are also getting progressively erased. But, by purchasing this products (at a really good price) you'll contributing to preserve these traditions and give employment to the marvelous artisans. Staff is really kind and ready to answer all your enquiries.
