Successful Ambiente Fair!

Sustainable Design from Vietnam

Thank you Ambiente visitors, for making our trade fair such a big success! We are looking back on a great fair, with hundreds of buyer contacts for the 9 Vietnamese exporters. The sustainable design products drew a lot of attention.

The natural bamboo lamps by Duc Phong were among the favorites, and were also shown in the prestigious Ambiente trend show. The team of VAG enthusiastically promoted their biodegradable kitchen cloths in trendy colors, attracting a lot of buyers. The mobiles, hangers and garlands by Blue Dragon, an exporter only working with recycled materials, made a great statement. The promotional booth showed a combined presentation of the 9 product ranges by the Vietnamese exporters.

Sustainable Design is a project by CBI, Vietcraft and SPIN. Irene Vermeulen of Craftscurator trained Vietnamese exporters, guided them in product development, coordinated marketing and promotion, and hosted the booth at Ambiente.
