The choice of White Thai ethnic minority
The choice of White Thai ethnic minority
Vietnam is a multi-ethnic country with more than fifty different groups who mainly live in the mountainous regions of the country. Coming from China a thousand years ago, the Thai ethnic group incorporate several groups, among which are the White Thai. During his first days in Vietnam, Ronan (one of the cofounder) discovered the traditional craft handmade by the White Thai people, falling nose with the designs that would adorn two years later all the N’go Shoes. And then, for more than a year, we work hand in hand with the craftswomen from Nghe An and Hoa Binh provinces. Grouped into cooperatives, they are able to organize their work collectively and to set their own prices.
