Overview
More
All lacquer products are unique handmade by skilled craftsmen/women. Each item is a piece of art and the customers buy simply for the aesthetic value and the quality of the pieces.Early Vietnamese artisans discovered how to use the juices derived from the Rhus Succedanea Tree, a sumac of South East Asia, and how to convert the oleo-resins into a slow drying natural lacquer which can be used to protect delicate paintings and other forms of art. Obtaining the lacquer and crafting lacquer wares is a process that requires knowledge, patience, ingenuity and foresight.Each creation of a lacquer product is the result of a time-honoured process. The products have 18 coats of lacquer which makes them very durable.

We were brought here by our travel guide and it is well worth a visit. It was an educational 10 minutes, from tapping the lacquer tree, producing 2 different types of lacquer and then applying artistry - either with paint, egg shells or mother-of-pearl. And...More

Excellent place to buy Tintin memorabilia- Whether they are Lacquer Plaques of Tintin comic covers or whether they are jewelry boxes with Tintin covers. You can also buy Tintin in Vietnam and Tintin in Saigon lacquer plaques.
