If you can spare a few coins, then pop past this fair trade shop in Hanoi. It is across from the temple of literature.

It has a huge range of fair trade products and this goes back into worthy organisations to support the ones that need it most.

Once you are done here, head back to Koto for a coffee to support street kids and getting them a leg up in this world.

This is an amazing shop - well two amazing shops actually!

The first we visited was full of beautiful silks, bags, scarves, and plenty of stunning little items that would make perfect gifts of our travels.

The second was focused more on homewares - dining settings, table runners, etc. we bought a number of beautiful vases.

All of the products are fair trade and help create sustainable industry, and they are all so beautiful and delicate.

Have fallen in love with this shop - and am repackaged suitcase to see if I can wrangle some more space for a few more items!

A must visit - along with the Temple of Literature and KOTO cafe

I strongly recommend this shop since it is part of a non-for-profit organization. Therefore, when you buy something you are helping traditional craft producers.

I must say that the prices were very fair (most of the products were even cheaper than in regular shops) and the quality was superb. I bought most of the souvenirs for family and friends here!

Craft link is house in a double storey shophouse and is a co-op handicraft shop. It has an assortment of Vietnamese traditional crafts on display; ethnic wear, jewelry pouches, purses, bags, picture holders, scarves made from a variety of materials. If you have shopped in those markets in HCMC, or the ones at the French quarter, you would be able to see the intricate workmanship of Craft Link producers. Definitely worth a visit, and take your time to browse. It's easy to be carried away and buy. Many items on it's shelves make good gifts for friends and family members. No bargaining please.

Of the two neighboring Craft Link shops (both across the street from the Temple of Literature), we visited the one at 43-52 Van Mieu, which carries beautiful silk scarves and embroidered handbags and purses, woven cushion covers and wall hangings, and clothing. They also carry jewelry. The quality is excellent, and the prices are reasonable and fixed. The shop is in an interesting old building, and once on the second floor, one should be sure to step out onto the balcony to reach the second upstairs room.
