Fairtrade accessories from Japan and Vietnam

Let me share with you a brand that I find very inspiring because supporting designs with an ethical cause has always been essential to me. Phu Hiep is a project that I discovered while once living in Vietnam.

The label started as a charity project in the Phu Hiep area of Hue, ancient capital of Vietnam. With the aim to create better foundations for children and young adult living in very poor conditions, a Japanese designer group started to train young women into artisans.

 Materials are provided from Japan by main designer Sei.

Besides the minimalistic designs above, I like the small stones below:

…and love the vibrant and life-affirming colours of these:
