*Quilling Card, rooted in Vietnam, has been incredibly fortunate to assemble a team of women who have become passionate about the art of quilling. In 2015, they were honored to become Fair Trade Certified with the Fair Trade Federation. The organization focuses on maintaining a code of values for just treatment of employees. They encourage growth and sustainable business all over the world. Saying a product is ‘handmade’, especially overseas, can often carry a negative connotation if there is no transparency about the working conditions and treatment of employees. Allying with the FTF, they are proud to have established successful, flourishing business practices. 

In May of 2014, they opened the doors to their first factory in Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam. They were able to employ over 100 quillers, providing a stable, safe work environment with healthcare, and food benefits. They are continually striving to create a community of women that love the craft and genuinely enjoy the creative outlet that quilling can provide, while simultaneously providing a living for themselves. With the rapid growth of our business, they were able to open a second factory soon after, starting with more than 60 quillers. They have now given jobs to nearly 500 locals in Ho Chi Minh City.

In addition to their wonderful team, Quilling Card has also been able to establish a Cottage Industry in Vietnam. Societal aid for those with disabilities is not the same as it is in the US, and often leaves people out of work and helpless. They have set up a program where these members of the community can come take supplies and complete work in their home, on their own time. They are paid per piece finished, and are able to contribute and create beautiful work they otherwise would not have the chance to do.
