Vietnam: memories set in lacquer

Don’t leave Vietnam without some of these sublime Hanoia lacquer bracelets. Vietnam’s leading luxury brand, Hanoia, beautifully interprets the country’s ancestral techniques in pieces with a contemporary esthetic. Consisting of at least 24 layers, the lacquer comes in a thousand colors, with inlaid eggshell or engraved work. Please note: Hanoia only sells them at its stores in Vietnam.

$53 per bracelet
