Beautiful gifts for on top of my Christmas packages. So colorful, and each one is just a little different due to the materials. All of the guys who were recipients were grateful they are fair-traded and help the Animal Rescue. I wrote the name and date on the ornament on either side of the hanger for personalization. Will buy again!

Located in the Phu Nghia sector of Vietnam's Ha Tav province, Tiger Lily is a company with a difference.
In an area with burgeoning air and water pollution, Tiger Lily values reducing, reusing, and recycling, and preserves trees and ponds inside its grounds. Instead of being thrown into landfills, old magazines and newspapers are re-purposed into beautiful and functional pieces of home decor.
Tiger Lily's designs fuse traditional Vietnamese design elements, such as bamboo, rattan, and lacquer, with a Western sense of aesthetics. The artisans' high levels of skill and patience is evident in every piece.
"As this kind of product becomes popular in Western countries, it means that more chances of jobs and improving their lives."
As a small, community-oriented company, Tiger Lily hopes for a bright future bringing new life to old materials, and fair trade wages to skillful artisans.
