Mekong Plus Hanoi

Mekong+, incorporating Mekong Quilts and Mekong Creations, is  a social enterprise specializing in high quality, hand crafted quilts  and accessories. The Indo-Chine inspired quilt range uses patchwork, piecing and intricate stitch detail to create a contemporary aesthetic. We use only the highest quality silks and cottons, along with beautiful vintage ethnic embroideries in our products.

Our accessories range combines the use of sustainable and local raw materials such as bamboo, water hyacinth and papier-mache with traditional hand craftsmanship to create innovative designs such as Bamboo bikes and gift items.

Mekong Quilts was established in 2001 as an income generation project under the umbrella of parent NGO, Mekong Plus. Quilting is labour intensive and requires minimum investment; a perfect employment activity. HCMC-based dentist Thanh Truong recognised these qualities and through her passion for quilts, began the programme with just 35 women, selling the quilts ‘Tupperware style’.

Following on from the success of Mekong Quilts, Mekong Creations was created in 2010 to diversify the product range.  Today Mekong+ engages over 340 women in full time employment in communities northeast of Ho Chi Minh City, Long My in the Mekong Delta and Rumdoul, Cambodia. All profits from products sold are returned to the villages both directly in the form of salaries, and indirectly in funding for community development projects.

The Mekong+ also has another location at 58 Hang Trong, Hoan Kiem, Vietnam | + 84 4 3824 4607
