Thien Hong, a workshop located in the Southern part of Vietnam and specializing in luxury horn and lacquer handicraft, was acquired by Openasia in 2010. Fully compliant with international standards, Thien Hong was an initial cornerstone of our global strategy to preserve and develop Vietnamese arts and crafts. Employing 134 craft persons, Thien Hong was developed in the 1990’s by Rose Morant, an ethnologist with a degree in fine arts, whose aim was to bring the Vietnamese lacquer crafts to the highest level of excellence. With patience and persistence and thanks to an outstanding team of crafts persons dedicated to quality, the company perfected the development to the highest possible standard, while keeping the craft alive and sustainable. Since the acquisition, we have strengthened company management, trying to improve the organisation and working environment of the workshop. Essentially, such changes provide the company with better tools to deal with major increases in orders from our always more demanding customers. In addition to a full collection of lacquered and horn-made jewellery, the company also produces decorative items, jewellery cases... Located in the suburbs of Ho Chi Minh City, at the very heart of lacquer craft villages.
