A street cart crammed with all the fresh ingredients and utensils needed for a scrumptious meal parked beside hungry guests enjoying their dishes on plastic tables beneath a bright red flag: it’s as iconic a street scene as possible in Vietnam.

It also provided inspiration for one of Ginkgo’s most popular T-shirts, which is part of a new series that introduces an exciting style blending photographs with embroidery.

“This summer is vibin’ so hard right now!”


For songs that speak of the season in such a way that you have to pack all of your sentiments in one crude exclamation, the spirit of summer is bustling. Tired of mainstream Latino and Tropical/Bass house over-saturating the radio? Take a stride in your brand new kicks on the streets swinging to this mix of hard hittin’ and mellow indie hits.

In the 12 years since it opened, Ginkgo has come a long way from its first 6 square meter storefront. Expanding on what it means to be crafted by Vietnam, the producer of premium clothing has developed a more nuanced style, opened new locations throughout the country and improved its sustainability efforts in coordination with the adoption of new materials.

'Made by Ginkgo' is a miniseries of editorials that really look behind the scene of how each piece of the Ginkgo brand is created and shaped, a collection of inspiring factors that has given Ginkgo the unique identity it is known today.

As Vietnam continues to develop, it’s trash problem is rapidly spiraling out of control. The country produces 18,000 tons of plastic waste a day and is one of five that collectively dump more into the oceans than all other nation’s combined.


“Looking at the limited choice of well designed souvenir in Vietnam, we wanted to combine travel memories and fun into a nice object, one that enables visitors to bring a little piece of the Vietnam adventure back home”

And that’s how Ginkgo’s Memory Game - a similar board game that is not like any other was born.


Located in the sunny central region of Vietnam, Hoi An shines with abundant charms. The Hoi An ancient town is designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site, it is exceptionally well-preserved and filled with historic beauty. Here are 05 things you must do when visiting this unique town:

1.    Try street food – as much as you can


Here’s a fact: the best food in Vietnam is street food. Bonus when you’re in Saigon: you’d find every region’s street food here, from Hanoi’s “bun cha” to Hue’s “bun bo”. Saigon just takes it all in, keep some original, adjust some to better fit Southern appetite, and that’s how you get different tastes when trying the same dish at different places. Because it’s so diverse and delicious in its own way, even picky eaters will surely find something delicious in the street courts of Vietnam.

Everybody has been really familiar with cotton, or even organic cotton, state the fact that an average person owns more than 10 T-shirts. Cotton is nice, soft, durable and very comfortable to wear. But things can get even better.

Let’s meet a really cool member of the cotton family: Supima. Supima is an American premium-grown cotton that is famous for its amazing quality. It’s not called “Cashmere of the Cotton” for no reason.


You can’t actually capture all the beauty Vietnam has to offer behind glass windows or riding on a motorbike with a helmet on your head. A cyclo slowly takes you down the streets, in this case, will surely do the trick.

Cyclo is a three-wheel bicycle taxi that appeared in Vietnam during the French colonial. It looks somewhat different depending where you are, in the North or in the South.
