Craft & Design in Vietnam 2012
Name:Craft & Design in Vietnam 2012

This publication is made possible by the International Trade Centre (ITC) and the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO), within the context of the joint programme ‘Green Production and Trade to Increase Income and Employment Opportunities for the Rural Poor’ and in close partnership with the Sustainable Product Innovation (SPIN) Project of the Vietnam National Cleaner Production Centre (VNCPC).

Following a successful experience in 2011, this “craft and design” publication presents the results of a second round of design assistance made available to companies by a team of foreign designers engaged under the programme by ITC, UNIDO and VNCPC. The sustainable product collections was first introduced to international buyers at LifeStyle Vietnam 2012, the international home décor and gift fair organized by VIETCRAFT in Hochiminh City in April 2012. As a result of design efforts, companies have developed new product lines which are commercially viable i.e. economically sustainable, and the production of which does not jeopardize environment. The local employment created in the production of input material for these products, alongside direct employment, contributes to livelihood security and social and economic sustainability including more equitable value chains. Since these products are easily produced within the traditional set up of ‘craft villages’ characteristic of Vietnam’s cultural industry, they also help vitalize and sustain the local culture.
