I visited the shop and they took their time helping me to design what I was looking for - a briefcase for me and a shoulder bag for my ride. The prices were excellent and the bags made in 36 hours. Very happy.

Prior to holidaying in Hoi An I knew of the hand made reasonably priced leather goods. Friendly Bags is high on trip advisor with excellent reviews. From the time I entered the shop to picking up the finished laptop bag the service was of a very high standard. The bag was styled exactly to what I described and had that... More

TLDR: You'll get a KILLER bag and top notch service at Friendly, and you'll only pay a small amount more for it. You'll love what you walk away with. If you're new to Hoi An, the wealth of choices for custom leather/suits/shoe shops is overwhelming. You'll pass about 10 leather bag shops in as many minutes of walking, and they... More

I visited the shop 4 times during my stay in Hoi An to decide on and design my bags. The staff were friendly and patient and really wanted me to be happy with my purchases! All bags came out great- well worth the money and I know I will be happy with them for years to come

My fiance wanted to get a leather briefcase in Hoi An, but we were a little hesitant because many of the leather good stores produce bags that look cheap. This shop has much nicer looking bags, for not much more money. Synthetic or cheap looking leather skeeves me out. If you are the same, this is the spot for you.... More

Friendly Leather Bags offers excellent service and quality with impressive turnaround time. Our consultants stayed with us past closing time (as we entered thirty minutes before closing) and made a concerted effort to complete the orders AND ship them for free to Ho Chi Minh City, which was where we would be based for the next two days before leaving...

We had two bags tailored here. Both bags came out just right and are super quality. The staff is really patient with you when trying to decide what you want! After the initial planning, they will go over it once again just to get every little detail in place, they are very precise on this. And the manufacturing took about... More

I don't write reviews too often but this place deserves it big time. Since the moment I arrived to the store they were very patient and professional with advices on how to design my own bag. Good selection of colors and type of leather. They make sure every detail is the way YOU want it to be, possibilities are endless.... More
