Vietnam – The second biggest wooden furniture in Asia

Wooden furniture of Vietnam has been well recognized in international markets with exports growing from USD1 billion in 2004 and reaching US$3.5 billion in 2010. By 2008, Vietnamese wooden furniture had already penetrated into 167 countries and territories in the world, of which United States of America, European Union and Japan are major ones.

Cheaper labor, combined with the absence of tariffs, a diligent work ethic by Vietnamese workers and quality products have made foreign outsourcers shift their eyes from other countries to Vietnam. Many foreign companies have invested in production of wooden furniture in Vietnam and exported worldwide, e.g. Scancom, Theodore Alexander… According to the remarks of the foreign buyers, craftsmanship and quality was really what attracted them to Vietnam: “Vietnam is really a leader in their woodworking. They produce top-quality work.” Vietnamese furniture goes beyond high quality; they also come up with some unique details and decorations, such as that of eggshells, lacquer, and carvings. These features help set Vietnam as different from other competing countries with low labor cost and similar products.

Indulge your senses with Vietnamese Bamboo & Rattan

Since a long time ago, the Vietnamese have had engraved within their mind the image of a tranquil countryside having a banyan tree, river shore, green bamboo, thatched cottage, and a wooden bell of a pagoda during a sunset… Vietnam is a country of bamboo and rattan as they are able to grow quickly and vigorously anywhere.

A nice country song

No one can pinpoint when rattan and bamboo made its appearance, but every Vietnamese has grown up with bamboo and rattan wares such as bamboo beds, rattan cradles… and their soul has been brought up with the legends of the rattan-growing king of Son Tinh mountain and Thanh Giong who pulled up a piece of living bamboo to annihilate the An invaders…

Not only existing in legends, rattan and bamboo have been long used in production and in the daily lives of the Vietnamese. Under the shade of green bamboo, Vietnam has conserved a long-standing culture with bamboo helping in the building of houses, the reclaiming of wasteland, and more with bamboo connecting closely and eternally with human life.

During the developing and forming of the nation, bamboo and rattan wares always improved through input of the many unique ideas of talented Vietnamese artisans who created quite an impressively wide range of exquisite aesthetic products: from frames, baskets, large flat winnowing baskets, screens, mats basket boats, etc to trunks, trays, chopsticks, plates, vases, tables, chairs, beds, pillows, cushions, mats, screens and bamboo tape fans. Besides, Bamboo and rattan are also used to make a lot of souvenirs and keepsakes for wedding ceremonies, musical instruments… displaying high artistic value.

Land of Exquisitely Talented Craftspeople

We are very proud to be able to say Vietnam is one of the most famous countries in the world for bamboo and rattan handicrafts with many rattan and bamboo handicraft villages national wide. Nowadays, Vietnamese rattan and bamboo products are not only domestically consumed very well but also serve as important exports. Bamboo and rattan wares attract more and more skillful and creative technicians, including many master crafts persons famous throughout the country.

Welcome to our Fair next year to have a look at our product range
