Zó Project

Written by

The Zó project is a social business, preserving and expanding the technique of traditional Vietnamese paper making, in a sustainable and creative way.

Founded by Tran Hong Nhung, profits are reinvested into the paper making community to create job opportunities and a stable income for ethnic minority villages in northern Vietnam.

They have just opened a new space where people can take part in workshops. Calligraphy or water colour painting workshops are VND300,000 per person, and paper-making tours in Hoa Binh are VND600,000 per person.

The original shop (House 27, along the railway track from 5A Tran Phu, Hoan Kiem) sells products such as notebooks (VND160,000 to VND190,000) and posters (VND250,000).

They also host workshops about paper and crafts, for both adults and children, as well as organising cultural events in collaboration with local and international artists.

Find Zó Project at 32 Ngo Hang Bot, Dong Da, Hanoi. Open Monday to Saturday from 9am until 6pm. For more information, call 01666 602928 or visit
