From Danish designer Anne Black. Handmade in her fair trade factory in Hanoi, Vietnam.
THE HISTORY OF ANNE BLACK IN VIETNAM
In 2005 Anne transformed her pottery skills and workshop into a development project, when she created a ceramic factory, in the north of Vietnam, together with Mrs. Hang (Vietnamese). There she had the chance to work closely with skilled artisans with whom she exchanged ideas, knowledge and inspiration.
The facility initially received support from the Danish aid organisation Danida and has over the years matured into a socially sustainable factory with more than 50 artisans, who produce Anne´s porcelain, with meticolous skill by hand day by day.
While given access to a clean working enviroment, insurances, health programmes and increased economic opportunity, these artisans, at the same time preserve treasured traditions of craftsmanship in Bat Trang, a famous village in Vietnam known for its ceramics history.
Together, beautiful porcelain designs are created.
