Inspiring story behind our earrings
Most of the girls who come to Zó are attracted by the beautiful earrings we have here. But not many people know the story behind those earrings. We would love to share the inspiring story of Ms. Hoa – the one who has designed all of our earrings with Vietnam traditional paper.
We met her on a sunny day when she first came to visit Zó at the railway track. We were so happy to talk with her and share our stories. And we began to work together with our love for handmade paper and traditional values.
She is just a normal woman with her family and her son. The biggest motivation for her to make hundreds of earrings with different designs and colors comes from her love for her autistic son.
Because her son can’t be as active and energetic as other children, she wants to spend most of her time playing with him. From that desire, she came up with the idea of making earrings from Do paper. Partly because of its social significance and partly so she can spend time with her son.
She taught him how to make them with simple steps and they can make lovely earrings together.
The earrings are made from Do paper, a kind of traditional paper that has been in Vietnam since hundreds of years. The earrings contain the characteristics of this paper such as: light, softness and durability. In addition, the earring colors are dyed from natural materials that show courteousness and sophistication. Our accessories fit with your style for every special occasion or just for everyday. It also can be a special gift for your beloved ones !
The creation of earrings, as well as many other handicrafts in Zó, are one of the important missions of the Zó Project. That is to add value to Vietnamese handmade paper with high value handicraft products and modern designs are closed to daily life.
