Mekong Quilts, incorporating Mekong Quilts and Mekong Creations
We are a social enterprise specializing in high quality, hand crafted quilts and accessories. The Indo-Chine inspired quilt range uses patchwork, piecing and intricate stitch detail to create a contemporary aesthetic. We use only the highest quality silks and cottons, along with beautiful vintage ethnic embroideries in our quilts.
Our accessories range combines the use of environmentally sustainable raw materials such as bamboo, water hyacinth and papier mache with traditional hand craftsmanship to create innovative designs. All materials are locally sourced.
Mekong Quilts products can also be custom made to meet our clients’ individualized aesthetic, and to the high standard of ‘workwomanship’ that our reputation is built on.
In 2010, following on from the success of Mekong Quilts, Mekong Creations was established to diversify the product range, which included handcrafted accessories and gift items.
The social enterprise now employs over 200 women in communities northeast of Ho Chi Minh City, Duc Linh and Tanh Linh, Ham Thuan Nam (Binh Thuan Province), Long My (Hau Giang province) in the Mekong Delta and Rumdoul (Svay Rieng province) in Cambodia.
Besides direct economic benefit to the women, all profits from your purchase of Mekong+ products are (via our NGO) used to support the wider communitythrough development initiatives such as micro-financing, scholarships, and health, hygiene and agricultural education programs.
Today Mekong Quilts and Mekong Creations have joined together to create a unified identity, Mekong Quilts.
