HerCraft's mission is to bridge the socioeconomic gap between minority and majority groups in Vietnam, while also enhancing the livelihood standards of disadvantaged women and supporting their children's education.

We achieve this by leveraging skills to craft unique products under the HerCraft brand, with proceeds reinvested to support their socioeconomic advancement.

Handcrafted Goods with a Purpose

HerCraft products use a combination of traditional and modern handicraft techniques, such as sewing, knitting, embroidery and crochet to design a variety of products. The clothing and accessory products include: Handbags, backpacks, wallets, t-shirts, button-down shirts, casual dresses, pants.

Our children’s toy products include: stuffed animals of species in Vietnam that in danger of disappearing. Each clothing and accessory product is designed with traditional, nature-incorporated symbols integrated and each children’s toy is made with a special ‘defect,’ or part of the animal, whether it be a trunk, paw, or other, that is made from colorful cloth that differentiates it from other types of children’s toys. Each product will come with a HerCraft leaflet explaining the mission of the social enterprise and the backgrounds of our beneficiaries.

Future products will be made entirely out of environmentally sustainable materials and will expand to include new clothing and accessory designs, as well as more animals that are in danger of disappearing due to deforestation and rapid development in Vietnam.

We also plan to expand this social enterprise to bring in more ethnic minority artisans whose handicrafts, cultures and languages are in danger of disappearing forever due to pressures to integrate fully into the ethnic majority Kinh social and political spaces.

UPCOMING WEBSITE

We are currently working on the new website for the HerCraft Program with an integrative Shop.
