About Us

I fell in love with Vietnam many years ago. I love everything about it: the food, the gardens, the people, the sounds, the smells, the art and especially the fact that everywhere, no matter where you look, some-one is always making something. Generations of hostile occupation and war have forged this country into a highly resourceful and creative community who take great pride in their manufacturing. Now at peace, the nation's focus is on creating a bright and prosperous future for its children and Vietnam is putting its survival skills to good use. Both ancient as a civilisation and young as a developing country, Vietnam has a unique energy that calls us back again and again.

In Vietnamese, Tay Tạo loosely means 'hand made' and we have a gorgeous collection of handmade kitchenware, baskets, scarves and toys to bring you from Vietnam. Each item has been personally selected by us as something that is both functional and beautiful. We don't sell anything that we wouldn't have in our own homes. In most cases, we have had the privilege of visiting the factories and workshops our pieces come from and we are thrilled to bring these small pieces of Vietnam back for you. We have also designed a few 'must have' items which have been created in Vietnam using local skills.
