Quilling is the art of using thin strips of paper to create or embellish images. Quilling requires a lot of patience and time! All of our cards at UViet Store are hand quilled using various lengths and colors of paper. For a demonstration of what quilling in action looks like, please view the video on our home page: uvietstore.com.
If you are sending your card via USPS, we recommend requesting "Hand Processing" (also called "Hand Canceling"). This ensures that your exquisite quilled card will not go through the postal service's automated machines. Simply ask for "hand processing/hand canceling" at your local post office when you go to mail your card.
All UViet Store cards come with a colorful envelope that we recommend using for mailing.
In Vietnam, the youth from the countryside flock to the cities of Hanoi and Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City) looking for employment, education, and a chance to better their lives. Unfortunately, the dormitory space around the university areas is crowded, and many fall prey to the traditional social evils of alcohol, drug and human trafficking, and prostitution.
The New Life Center, in the heart of this University district, provides a safe place to live and study, while providing young women with employment in the quilling card industry.
