Famous for its silk and precise tailoring, shopping in Vietnam can provide you with so much more than just those souvenir cone hats.
In Hoi An, the tailors will whip up your heart’s desire. Just show them a picture, pick out your fabric, and you’ll get something bespoke within 24 hours for a song. But in Ho Chi Minh (also known as Saigon) and Hanoi, there are also stores where you can try on plant-dyed silk separates, beach-beautiful hats, and even get a non-toxic manicure when you’re done.
Here’s where to go shopping for fashion if you want to ensure you’re supporting ethical local artistry in Vietnam.
