Tan My Embroidery
A storied Hanoian tradition with roots in fashion, design and houseware, Tan My Embroidery is one of Hanoi's oldest shops that produce embroidered goods. From pillow cases, clothes, linens, table cloths and pyjamas, you'll find everything you need to outfit you and your home. Choose from stylish patterns, classic designs and bright colours that add a touch of boldness to your life. Tan My Embroidery also operates Hanoi's Tan My Design and Tan My Cafe, both located across the street.
Three generations have been involved in Tan My Embroidery, which grew out of the trying years of war in Vietnam. Mother of Huong, the founder of Tan My, embroidered loved ones' messages on handkerchiefs to be given to soldiers who then carried the items with them throughout the war. Today all embroidery at Tan My is done by hand by over 500 skilled artisans, which ensures you're purchasing the finest quality work. Visit the shop at 66 Hang Gai in central Hanoi.
