Whether stuffed toys, animal key rings, handmade handbags, soft-covered notebooks, pillows, or children’s hand puppets, there’s something available to tickle every fancy. For the new Year of the Rooster, Kym Viet has a family of five chicks in chic vintage flowery fabrics at VND620,000 a set. For the kids to have a better nap in the car, it has cute red polka-dot neck pillows in the shape of a sleeping cat or a flowery elephant at VND200,000 each.
Kym Viet is a social enterprise aimed at creating employment for the disabled through vocational training. It is now home to five young disadvantaged girls who have become talented craftswomen. Their chic products are also on sale at souvenir shops around Hanoi’s Old Quarter as well as charity bazaars, gift shows and events organised in major hotels around town.
