I have visited Ho An 7 times over the years and get a little anxious about having anything made. I have had some real disasters over the years so when I decided to get a leather handbag made I did my research on trip advisor (naturally!). This shop seemed like the best choice and happened to be in the same... More

My cousin and myself bought three bags this week, 1 large holdall and 2 backpacks. The girls are very friendly, as the company name suggests and will sit down to discuss all aspects of what you are looking for in a leather bag, from the outside look to finer details like lining and inside pockets. I provided a picture of... More

I wanted a bucket bag and the advise about the design and the type of leather was good and the staff very friendly. I love the result and think the quality is really good but you also get a one year guaranty so no worries :)

The ladies at Friendly are awesome. It is amazing that they can accomplish completely custom leather bags overnight. They are very friendly during the process of designing your bag as well. Prices are more than fair and their products are very high quality. Highly recommended while in Hoi An.

I found friendly leather bags by chance just walking down the street. The three girls inside were superfriendly from the beginning, not pushy at all and were very patient with me while I needed the time to choose the leather I wanted my bag to be made of. I sent them a picture of my dream bag and they recreated... More

We LOVED friendly leather. We only had one day to make 5 bags and they finished it all on time and with amazing quality and kindness.The shop keepers weren't pushy and really listened to what they want. All 5 of our bags are GORGEOUS. No need to go anywhere else!

Have your leather goods made here! Staff spoke good English, were so patient with my friend and I and were extremely helpful. As an indecisive person it was great to have a knowledgable craftsman there to guide me as I attempted to design a weekend bag as well as tote bag. They know what works and ensure that whatever you... More

Arrived in Hoi An during Lunar New Year and to my dismay Friendly Leather Bags was shut and I was really wanting to go here after reading trip advisor reviews. They opened again on 2 Feb and were able to take my order and have it ready by the morning of 3 Feb when I was departing Hoi An. I... More

I hadn't intended getting a bag made but met Na and her family on our transfer from Danang so decided to check out the shop. I spent hours trawling the internet for a design but when I entered the shop I chose an entirely different one that they had on display. I love it. The smell of the leather, the... More

My friends and I went on a holiday to Vietnam and wanted to get some leather bags copied and shoes made. There were many many leather bag shops in Hoi An, but we decided to take our business to the Friendly Bag Shop 2. The manager (Na) was absolutely amazing. Every other store was super pushy and demanding for our... More
