Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam – UK design firm, Amel Designs Ltd., have just released their new, spring collections of dining and bathroom accessories. The new collections feature this year’s most fashionable colours, including Marsala, in a range of playful and stylish patterns and colour combinations.
Amel Ryan – an Indonesian born entrepreneur – launched Amel Designs Ltd., in 2014. Having fallen in love with the beauty and craftsmanship of Vietnamese lacquerware, Amel wanted to make this handicraft more accessible to an aesthetically conscious public, who value traditional craftsmanship, but want to see it applied to contemporary designs.
“Vietnamese lacquerware is often exquisite,” says Amel, “but there is very little of it designed to meet current Western tastes. That was the opportunity we saw when we launched Amel Designs. Our products are all designed to be functional as well as beautiful. We follow trends in colour palettes, as well as introducing our own exclusive colour lines and we are very responsive to our customer’s feedback.”
Considering the amount of time, effort and skill that goes into the manufacture of lacquerware (90 days per piece for the best quality), Amel sets her prices at an extremely competitive level. It’s part of her company ethos, “to make these beautiful handmade products affordable to everyone who appreciates them and not only those with deep pockets”.
“Currently our products are only available for wholesale purchase, but we hope to introduce a retail section to the website, if our customers and fans let us know they want it.”
Amel Designs website address is: http://www.ameldesigns.com
Amel encourages anyone with an interest in beautiful, decorative things to visit her site and leave comments and feedback on the new collections.
