Tucked away from the main road down a laneway off Hang Bong Street, Fuku is a leather store and café where visitors can spend hours sipping coffee while sewing their own leather bracelets. The helpful staff will guide you and lend you all the necessary tools for leather crafting, cutting and sewing.
Fuku also sells a variety of leather products, ranging from watch chains, key chains, shoulder bags and handbags to men’s wallets, belts and even eyeglass cases, priced around VND500,000 each. All are made from high quality pure cow leather by Vietnamese craftsman and come with a lifetime guarantee. The shop also offers a made-to-order service in case you need a laptop bag or a wallet with your own pattern or name on it.
Though situated down a small laneway, the shop isn’t small at all, and has a chic and unique decoration with nostalgic items from the American War (1955-1975) or even the French War (1946-1954), as well as stuff for daily use from Vietnam’s subsidised period in the 1980s. The warmth of the dim yellow lights gives the place a special ambience.
