Mekong Quilts (Hanoi)
Mekong Quilts was founded in 2001 as an income generation project under the umbrella of parent NGO, Mekong Plus. They sell quilts made by women in poor and rural communities across Southeast Asia.
Mekong Quilts employs women in communities northeast of Ho Chi Minh City as well as, offering employment opportunities to Cambodian women through Mekong Quilts.
Profits generated from the sale of the quilts are then reinvested into the community through Mekong Plus. These opportunities for locals include: scholarships for children, agricultural training, micro-finance programs, and other niche projects to support the community and people making the quilts. These shops, and the sale of quilts to tourists, provide sustainable employment to women, and the profits from the sale of the quilts also benefit the poor communities in which they live.
They have multiple locations around the city, and around the region, so check their website for further specifics.
