On passion

Art and design can’t live without craft. Hanoia relies on the passion of its craftsmen and designers to build its own lacquerware expression. Hanoia was first established in 1997 in Binh Duong Province, near Saigon, in the historical lacquer village since the 14th century.

Reigniting ancient techniques, the small team of craftsmen, together with a team of foreign designers, initially designed a trendy lacquered wood sandal for fashionista which became a large success in Europe for 3 seasons. In 2002, the team moved on to producing high-end accessory for some famous luxury houses in Europe and this cooperation still continues.

The increasing success of a new home décor collection required in 2013 to establish a new workshop near Hanoi, in the historical lacquer village since the 16th century. With the same traditional methods of production being used by the local craftsmen, today Hanoia-made products are sold worldwide.

Thriving on its unique know-how for quality lacquer and its sophisticated design featuring East meets West, Hanoia is now developing its own branded collections and looking at niche markets such as high-end souvenirs, trendy, luxury decorative objects and corporate gifts. With its two workshops in the North and in the South, Hanoia is recognized as one of the largest lacquer manufacturers in Vietnam conforming to the European REACH certificate of compliance (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals).

Preserving the Vietnamese lacquer tradition, Hanoia invites you to discover ancient inspirations wrapped in contemporary colours, shapes, patterns and techniques. From art to craft, Hanoia has enhanced the uniqueness of Vietnamese traditional materials, the charm of decorative items symbolizing Eastern culture and ”Vietnamese lacquerware values reputed worldwide
