The owner/all-in-one bag boss is Pauline Lewis. She left the corporate world five years ago and traveled back to Asia. She was inspired by the women she met along the way and started to work with one Vietnamese designer in particular: Ms. Le Thi Hong Tu, better known as Hong Tu. Hong Tu’s designs, combined with Pauline’s vision and direction, are the cornerstone of oovoo™ design.
Thus, oovoo™ handbags have a unique blend of Asian and Western influences that translate into handcrafted works of art. The bags are 100% hand-embroidered and carefully crafted.
This alliance between two woman-owned enterprises has grown to support over 600 women in Vietnam: with 120 full-time employees in the southern region of Vietnam; and 500 part-time embroiderers in the North.
