    Hi Jo,
    I am writing from Oregon. I want to replace a few articles of women’s cotton silk clothing that were made by a family shop in Viet Nam, which I believe has gone out of business. The items are similar to those in the above photo UNDERSTAND SILK. I would appreciate the name of that shop or the shop you used to have your clothes made.
    The items were originally made for Australian BBizarre, American Sundara, UK Pink Saalu. I have pictures of the cotton/silk mixture in white & black and can supply pictures of the items.
    I would be also be interested in buying the fabric.
    Thank you for any info you can give me.

    BLESS! I am going to Hoi An next month, spending 3 nights there in total. So glad to read this post. I took good notes with things I should consider. I think tomorrow I will buy a fashion magazine (haven’t bought one in ages) to check what’s in. Then go window shopping to check what I like 🙂

    I am in Hoi An now and things are not that cheap. I think if you want something custom, you are better off going to Bangkok. The astronomical rise in the US dollar has made everything more expensive here!

    Plus the suits do not really look good.
