Since 2016, N'go Shoes has been working with Vietnamese craftswomen from the White Thai ethnic minorities to make their fabrics. The founders of the brand are regulars of the country since they live there part-time. This allows the brand to develop a network of craftswomen throughout Vietnam by collaborating with this type of cooperatives without intermediaries. The goal is thus to have a real economic and Engagement social positive impact in several Vietnamese communities. The craftswomen are remunerated by the meter, i.e. approximately 8€/m (this can vary according to the difficulty of making the fabric pattern). Moreover, N'go commits not to negotiate the price of the fabric according to the quantity ordered. The brand does not wish to communicate the name of the factory for competitive reasons.
