Nelipot Sisters

Written by

Bohemian fashion just got a new Hanoian home, with the opening of Nelipot Sisters at 7 Tho Xuong, Hoan Kiem.


“I’m still looking up what Bohemian actually means,” says owner Ding Linh. “But Nelipot is an old English word which means one who walks without shoes.”


The store is a cosy space, cute and colourful from wall to wall. It currently offers a mix of goods handmade by Linh, along with clothes imported from neighbouring countries.


VND160,000 will get you a handmade bag, perfect for cosmetics or toiletries. Stitched together by Linh, the colours are beautiful and richly saturated.


The traditional baggy elephant trousers hanging from the hips of every backpacker from Phu Quoc to Patpong can also be found at Nelipot Sisters.


However, with an intricate handwoven belt, and the overall quality turned up to 11, the price gets turned up too, to VND300,000.
