Artisan: Au Lac

Artisan Au Lac

Founded by a former Maryknoll volunteer over a decade ago, Au Lac brings jobs to poor women living in Hanoi and the surrounding rural areas. The local women are especially gifted in the traditional art of embroidery, and stitch beautifully detailed silk accessories and clothing. In fact, in May 2007, one of their beautiful shell bags was featured in the popular 'O' Magazine! Training and assistance are available to the women who work with Au Lac, giving them the opportunity to build their understanding of international markets and demands, design, quality control, and production management.
