Unimex provides export services for a variety of handicraft workshops in North Vietnam. They assist craftspeople in finding local and international markets for their handicrafts. Unimex works with artisans in the traditional ceramic-making village of Bat Trang, east of Hanoi, where most of Ten Thousand Villages' Vietnamese tableware is made, as well as with many other artisans throughout northern Vietnam. Unimex works with small buyers and workshops who would otherwise be disconnected. Benefits to artisans include loans, skills training and product development.
