Meet our artisans
Quilling, or paper filigree, is the meticulous art of creating intricate shapes from trimmed strips of paper. Started in ancient Egypt, quilling originated between 300-400 AD and grew to popularity in Europe and the East over the centuries. In Vietnam, women are taught the craft in school, which has led to the development of a cottage industry. Tiny strips of cream colored paper are rolled, shaped and glued together by female craftswomen who genuinely love the creative outlet that quilling provides. These cards were produced in a quilling factory owned and operated by Phuong Thi, a young female entrepreneur, that provides a safe environment for workers who are paid per finished piece.
