Travel Experience

Zó project designs and develops products from handmade papers. The paper is made in the region of Hoa Binh by paper makers, and we make the final products in our shop in Hanoi. We continuously develop new ranges of products and designs. We also organise workshops and event about paper and crafts for adults and children. We collaborate with local and international artists to organise cultural events, and we also work with designers from all around the world to create original products that will please everyone.

Responsibility

Zó project is a social business, which preserves, supports and expands traditional Vietnamese paper and the technique to produce it sustainably and creatively. Zó works with the artisans from paper villages to make and improve the ancient papermaking technique in Viet Nam. The benefices we make from selling the products made of this paper go directly to these families. The project seeks to preserve the process of handmade papermaking in accordance with environmental standards. By constantly creating new products with contemporary design, we also wish to increase the value of Vietnamese handmade paper to incorporate this ancient tradition in our daily lives. It is very interesting to adapt this ancient tradition to our modern life and create contemporaneous products with this paper.

Business Case

Zó Project is a social enterprise. Our main goal is to preserve our traditions and culture by incorporating them into our modern lives. The profits of the project are going back to the community of papermaker to create job opportunities and stable income for the ethnic minority village in the Northern province of Vietnam.
