You travel half way round the world and all your other half want to buy is another handbag. She obviously knew all about this place well before we got to HCMC so seek it out we did. Thankfully the shop was quite small so she couldn't spend too long in there :) I must admit the bags did look a... More

This shop is pretty closed to the hotel where I stayed, so excited to bump into this shop for the first sight. I must say it is very pricey for each bag. But when you look into detail, it does have layer and design, also many materials being used to create such bag. After finishing the whole Dong Khoi St.... More

I had researched this company before going to Vietnam and visited their shop in Hanoi but couldn't decide what to buy. Turns out their shop on Dong Khoi Street was across the street from my hotel. I literally ran in 15 minutes before my morning airport pickup on my last day in Vietnam and bought a truly gorgeous evening purse.... More

I bought a few bags from Ipa-Nima on 16th Oct. The staff asked for my passport to process the VAT refund. The staff took more than 45 minutes to fill up the VAT Refund form; saying that she does not want to make any error in the form. However my VAT refund was rejected at the airport as the staff...

Dear Angie Thank you for your feedback. We apologize for the long time it took to process you VAT refund. At that time, the VAT refund form was new and we had been informed that the VAT form needed to be perfect in order to ensure the refund was was given. We are not sure why the refund was not... More

The staff could speak Japanese which was helpful for my wife and sister-in-law. I wouldn't have said their selection of bags and especially purses was very extensive but clearly they were of good quality and imaginatively designed. The shop didn't turn on their AC which made it a little uncomfortable inside.

Bags were exquisitely beautiful. The staff were friendly, patient, gave constructive comments when I couldn't make up my mind, and were extremely helpful. Bought a few items before flight and they were quick to help bring in new pieces from the other store a street away. Great service! Shopping there was one of the highlights of my holiday. Will definitely... More

Great little shop with truly original quirky items. It focuses mostly on bags but I went specifically as they stock Chula dresses and I had missed getting to the Chula showroom in Hanoi. There were lots of amazing handbags in many different colours and finishes. The Chula selection was limited but I managed to find one evening silk dress that... More
