On the 23rd of November, 2014, we were beyond humbled and pleased to announce the grand opening of our new shop at 113 Lê Thánh Tôn, District 1, Ho Chi Minh City, and what was to be one of the most exciting moments in the 19 years since our conception. With the shop beautifully decorated with pine cones, plants, wildflowers and christmas lights, the magic in the air is undeniably endearing. It is a true, gorgeous Authentique space that we have long aspired to finally bring to life; one that is light and airy, modern yet gentle unto the senses. A space that fills you with joy with all that it has to offer; a space in which our ceramics, textiles and wooden furniture are delicately held together by the gentle curves of the plants and the leaves.
For the past 19 years, we have passionately endeavoured to unearth the true beauty of the Vietnamese ceramic tradition to the world, a tradition that has been largely overlooked and forgotten, buried deep under the scars left behind by our country's tumultuous and often violent past. For the past 19 years, we have committed ourselves to bringing back the beauty of Vietnamese ceramics to more people, both through the preservation of our antique heritage and the innovation of new designs and ideas. And for the past 19 years, perhaps even without knowing, we have been waiting for this very exciting day. Despite having been a renowned maker of Vietnamese ceramics among the Japanese for many years, we believe the day has long been overdue for us to reintroduce into the Vietnamese psyche the true value behind our extraordinarily beautiful ceramics tradition, a value of which we can truly be proud.
We would like to invite you to pop in at our new address and share with us the ecstasies and joys that are only made possible when one surrounds oneself with the beauties of nature and nature-inspired items. Our ceramics, textiles, and furniture are all handcrafted with great love and care by our dedicated artisans, and our cherished collection is sure to win your hearts and those of your loved ones at first sight and upon first touch. Come hold a ceramic bowl in your hand and truly feel for yourself all the centuries of hardships and triumphs behind one of the most beautiful lost traditions of the world.
