Review: Quilling Card - Quilled, Fair Trade Greeting Cards

Saturday, July 4, 2020

Review by: Cynthia

Quilling Card makes beautiful handcrafted greeting cards that are a true work of art. So much more than just a  greeting card. Beautiful works of art!

Quilling Card, rooted in Vietnam, has been incredibly fortunate to assemble a team of women who have become passionate about the art of quilling. In 2015, they proudly became certified members of the Fair Trade Federation.
With the rapid growth of their business, they were able to open a second factory, starting with more than 60 quillers. They now have  given jobs to nearly 500 locals in Ho Chi Minh City.

In addition to the wonderful team, Quilling Card has also been able to establish a Cottage Industry in Vietnam. Societal aid for those with disabilities is not the same as it is in the US, and often leaves people out of work and helpless. They have set up a program where these members of the community can come take  supplies and complete work in their home, on their own time. They are paid per piece finished, and are able to contribute and create beautiful work they otherwise would not have the chance to do.

The cards are lovely.  They are like a card and a gift rolled into one.  Everyone you send them to remarks how beautiful they are and these cards are usually displayed on a mantel, table or shelf somewhere in their house.  Being a craft and sewing lady I know the work that must have gone into them.  Getting a card like these will touch anyone.  A perfect keepsake!
