Le Dieu Ha
Le Dieu Ha is planning to experiment with shoe lasts and get to know the factory community in order to develop her creative response. She has an affinity with sewing, in particular the handmade through sewing, and is interested in all the maker practices and material and process skills in evidence at Lap Phoung.
Lap Phoung makes vulcanised rubber shoes from the sole to the upper, putting them all together and shipping them off to clients all over the world. The factory is about to upscale and move to another location north of HCMc. Lap Phoung leisure shoes are custom made for clients all over the world. Many of the processes are still handmade.
