Quilts & community

Founded in 2001 as an income generation project under the umbrella of its parent NGO, Mekong Plus, Mekong Quilts shops are well-known among expats for their high-quality, sophisticated, handmade yet environmentally-friendly products such as cotton quilts, rattan fashion accessories, home accessories, and bikes made from bamboo.

Mekong Quilts supports community development programs in remote villages in Vietnam and Cambodia. Its key objective is to generate employment for women, who receive training, a fair wage, and employment benefits and work in a safe and comfortable environment. All profits generated from sales are reinvested into the community through Mekong Plus, in scholarships for children, agricultural training, and micro-finance programs.

There are a variety of quilts to choose from in different sizes, colours and themes, ranging from contemporary to Asian-inspired designs. Adult quilts range from VND5,600,000 to VND9,900,000 while children’s quilts are from VND3,800,000 to VND6,200,000 and kid’s quilts VND1,300,000 to VND1,900,000. A Bamboo city bike for women is VND15,000,000 and for men, with Fixie, Mountain or Hybrid styles, from VND25,000,000 to VND47,000,000.

Open from 9am to 8.30pm Monday to Thursday, and 9am-7.30pm Friday to Sunday.
