Located in the heart of Ho Chi Minh City in District 1, our factory, or as we like to call it, ‘studio’, is a unit at the top of a quaint shophouse overlooking the bustling street. We visit the factory every other month, and have forged a strong relationship with the owner, Truc.
As a seamstress tucked a seam under with her finger and another prepared to cut the fabric, a member of the photography team exclaimed: ‘I can’t believe it’s all handmade!’. The truth is, a person, no different from any of us is operating that sewing machine - we hardly realise that all our clothes are handmade - it’s old school, but that’s how all of our clothing is made. It’s a lovely human story, and it reinforces the need for us to help people value craftsmanship and the hands behind each piece of clothing.
