..........................is a collective of artisans and traditional makers skilled at helping global creatives turn design ideas into realities. The collective comes together as a digital community under the auspicious of Fashion4Freedom and the Center for Preservation and Economic Development (CPED) in Hue, Vietnam.
We recognize that ethical and sustainable designers and labels want a new and more compassionate process of production and manufacturing; at present, sustainable and well-considered manufacturing is either too costly or limited in option. Whether you're curious to discover ancient methods of traditional craft, seeking artisans to make your design dream come true, or just hoping to find a heritage village to visit, we can help you start your journey.
Connect global designers & creative explorers with local makers and traditional artisans in Vietnam.
Logistics, language, and cost are only some barriers that keep many of us from exploring our creativity. CRAFTED SOCIETIÉS opens doors to new possibility.
As more methods of manufacturing globally move towards automation and 3D printing, interesting designs based on authentic cultural methods will be more difficult to come by. Our platform and ecosystem makes it easy to explore your creative societies hidden from conventional trade routes.
The Future is Craft
Design is a process in problem-solving. The fashion and garment industry is arguably the second largest supply chain in the world .
We believe that with thoughtful designs, we can tap into this massive supply chain and use fashion as a way to address social challenge
