Made along the Mekong

These countries are rich in tradition and culture and possess diverse materials for handicrafts, including ceramic, wood, bamboo, fabric and rattan. Sadéc District is proud of its bamboo products made by artists from Chuong My village in Hanoi, which is considered the cradle of the bamboo handicraft trade in Vietnam, rustic contemporary Cambodian ceramics, and an array of plates, spoons and chopsticks made from durable water resistant ash wood, soft linen tablecloths, and ceramic teapots in blue and while glaze from Vietnam, including women wearing ao dai, iconic historic buildings, and cyclos.

The shop also features ‘Amai Saigon Ceramics’, a unique Vietnamese-made ceramic collection. Their appeal lies in their thin shape and charming pastel colours. It’s also interesting to find traditional Vietnamese coffee filter, called phin, made in Amai porcelain.

Sadéc District recently opened a new branch in District 2 in HCMC, featuring Lam, a women’s fashion brand, Cincinnati and Ne-yuh, with elegant handmade leather products, Catherine Denoual Maison, with graceful embroidery and brocade, Pacey cupcakes, and Cassia flowers.

Open from 9am to 7pm daily. Prices start at VND50,000.
