Binh Thuan Authentic
Except for a few specially noted exceptions, all of our products are made locally, here in Binh Thuan Province, by families in their own home-enterprises. Many of these people belong to minority groups, and all are engaging in traditional craftwork. Our products are of the highest quality and cannot be purchased in shops anywhere else in the country. Our items are hand-made and unique. These are NOT suvenire-grade. We have made an unprecidented effort to scour the province for only the best and most unique items. These are authentic products. By purchasing these items from Binh Thuan Authentic you are supporting local families and helping them maintain their intangible cultural heritage.
Our shop is undergoing an initial trial phase. Orders are not guaranteed until confirmed. We can deliver orders to anywhere in Ham Tien, Mui ne and Phan Thiet (including your hotel). Bulk orders are prefered at this time but in some cases we can sell individual items. Please allow 1-3 days for order delivery after confirmation, depending upon the item.

Unlike everybody else, we don't dilute our honey with sugar syrup. We guarantee pure honey straight from the bee keeper's hives. Curently we have two kinds of honey available: Cashew Flower Honey and Wildflower Honey. Coffee Flower Honey will be available soon. Contact us to Order.
Minority Baskets (Backpacks)!
We are happy to stock baskets make by K'ho (Koho), Rai, Rag Lai and Churu minorities. Each minority has its own distinct style of basket weaving. These baskets are worn on the backs of men and women as they work in the forest, scavenging for food and resources. This is a very unique item, never available for retail before. This is because families traditionally make these baskets themselves, in their own home--for their own personal use. These items are purchased directly from the minority families in their remote villages. Contact us to Order.
Rice Cake Candies!
Our rice cake candies are made by hand by a family living in their 200-hundred-year-old home in Phan Thiet. The indredients are entirely natural--rice, sugar and dried fruit. Contact us to order.
Our Cham textiles are made on traditional looms, displaying traditional Cham designs. These fabrics are made in Binh Thuan Province, NOT in Phan Rang. Contact us to order.
