In 2004, Laura Fontan and Diego Cortizas arrived in Hanoi Vietnam. The journey for this Spanish couple began soon after they fell in love with the country. They were inspired by “the people, the food, and the colors” and most of all, they were inspired by “all the amazing fabrics and crafts” that surrounded them in their new lives.

It was then that they decided to start Chula, a company which has now grown to have a very unique and recognizable image all over Vietnam. The combination of simplicity in shape with their fresh and radical designs served as a starting point and Chula is now a thriving creative company which hopes to continue expanding in the future.

We have been steadily growing over the past 12 years and we have become a popular reference in the Vietnamese fashion and art industry. As an expanding company, we have also taken part in many international fashion shows in the United States, Europe, and Asia. As of 2016, there are 5 Chula stores situated around Vietnam, and, with our new and developing systems of websites, we plan to sell to multiple other countries around the world.

Chula is also a social company and works with many small local communities in the north of Vietnam. At the moment, it is made up of a skilled community of 60 people, 75% of whom have a physical disability.

All our items are made with special care so as to satisfy all customers. We hope you enjoy your Chula experience!

I wiggled my way into visiting this shop. Took my husband and two young sons in town. This place is really very very awesome.

Having become disillusioned with shopping in Hanoi, I was delighted to be taken by a friend to the Chula shop at 18 Nha Chung. We were looked after by Linh who is a terrific salesperson and could not have been more helpful. The dresses are really interesting and some are quite exquisite. I bought a beautiful silk dress for my... More

Terrific experience, had my daughter's wedding dress designed here. It was fun and she now has a very original dress with a great story. Spanish couple have had this business for 12 years. The seamstresses are all on site and are very special, they are mute so the business is supporting the disabled with a big heart! If you want... More

It was hard to decide (but the budget dictated) there were so many fabulous designs by this amazing label. Three of us went to visit. One of the ladies already has a dozen Chula dresses bought over the past five years, and the other two ladies each bought two garments. But so hard to decide they were all so fab.

Incredibly beautiful and well designed clothing by a husband-wife couple from Spain, based in Hanoi. With so many diverse collections, it is impossible not to find something that you MUST have. The prices reflect the high fashion and sustainable practices of Chula -- I am proud to support them!
