This purse is really beautiful and practical with lots of card slots. I'm really looking forward to using it.
I absolutely love this bag! I came across Valerie Cordier from my time in Hanoi and everything about this bag reminds me of happy times. The workmanship is exceptional and the fabrics are beautiful.
This bag is beautifully made. The inside was a colourful surprise with the different materials used, the outside so well crafted. Lots of pockets, enough space for what I need everyday. My first purchase from temples and markets, that will see me coming back for more.
Very good product. Great seller. I highly recommend
Thank you very much

It was my first order and I was very happy with the service, especially the handwritten note from Judith. Thank you.
I bought an orange resin buddha for myself and a yellow one for my son. They are about 15 or 16 cm high which is perfect, because they're not miniature, and they're not so big that they are hard to fit in anywhere. They are very tactile...everyone picks them up as the resin has a lovely feel because it is smooth, and the headwear is a lovely contrast. I placed mine in a spot with light (as opposed to inside a bookshelf or similar) because they catch the light and sort of glow...just lovely. The quality is excellent, received mine very promptly in the mail, they are eyecatching and a great reminder for me to meditate (as I am a beginner and find prompts helpful). Having a lucky color based on your actual day of birth is a lovely individual touch. I will be giving more buddhas as presents, because even if my friends aren't into buddhism/mindfulness, they are just beautiful in their own right, and I know for me that having a buddha around, excites my curiosity to learn more about eastern practices. The owner of the store was really helpful answering my questions too.
This was a Christmas gift for my son, he was thrilled. Said that it was understated elegance.
Loving this tote! Nice and roomy enough to fit everything (including my water bottle) yet very light. Love the material and the fact that it’s vegan and ethically made.
Well made, beautiful and natural.
I love wearing my Colorful Beads spectrum necklace. It can be worn with really almost everything. I get compliments every time I wear it. I looked high and low to find this necklace. I finally found it here at Temples & Markets. Even though I live in USA, purchasing the necklace was easily sent to me. My first Colorful Beads spectrum necklace, also purchased from Temples & Markets, was stolen. I am happy to find this treasure still available.
I purchased this for my husband for Fathers Day and he loves it. The quality is fabulous and he will get a ton of wear out of it.
Huge thanks to Judith for her exceptional customer service relating to all my purchases 💗🙌
You can't go wrong with anything from Zsiska - it's all beautiful. Contemporary feel. Good quality workmanship. Nicely packaged (for those all important presents).
These Resin Buddha’s are just so beautiful! Can’t wait to purchase the rest of the colours.
Thank you Temples and Markets! All of my little Newborn friends now receive an elephant! They enter the world being charitable and help their other little friends in the world.
Thank you to the ladies in Cambodia that do a great job making them, they are so beautiful and very loved in their new homes
Beautifully made & lovely fabric. Very happy with this product.
Many years ago, I purchased this round bag in Hanoi. Everywhere I went after that, people complimented me on this distinctive bag. When the bag finally wore out, I was so disappointed and knew I would never be able to replace it. Then, I discovered Temples and Markets online. I was thrilled, although a little worried about shipping from Australia to the US. However, the process was seamless, delivery was as expected, and the bag was just as I remembered. I am so happy to have another and also to support the women of the Mekong Delta.
He earrings were received within a week and the earrings were beautiful and of high quality.
I bought this necklace for my best friend's birthday. Having travelled to Cambodia herself, she was absolutely delighted and thought the story and symbolism behind the necklace was incredible. Sublime customer service, with a message to me to ask whether I wanted the necklace gift wrapped, as well as very speedy delivery. Thank you Judith! I will definitely be repeat purchasing this item for future gifts.
Very happy with purchase - quality product
Love these coasters they are very pretty
Was not expecting the necklace to be all resinresin i was looking for a silver type metal ... but my fault cos it does say on the site. It was to be a.gift but i shall keep.it for.myself!
These Buddhas radiate peace and contentment and add it to any space they sit in. Being resin the light hits and shines through them which brings an added radiance and beauty. I bought pink and purple, one each for my nieces, but currently they're sitting in my living room and I may not be able to give them up!
I love this necklace- looks fabulous on. Stylish, exotically oriental and just the right length. It looks equally good worn with a long floating top over trousers for a casual wear or with a black cheongsam for an exotic oriental evening look.
Perfect unique gift for a close friend. Amazing pages and pictures. Worth every cent. Postage was quick and very pleased with the overall shopping experience
Silky but strong fabric .Well made. Folds up to nice small size which easily fits in a handbag
Love my colourful bead necklace. I get compliments every time I wear it. Love the Zsiska jewellery.
I love my new necklace. Judith provided quick and efficient service and delivery. Will definitely purchase from this company again.
It is a conversation piece! an original and absolutely pops with a black dress!
Love the story that goes with it!
As always thanks so much to Judith at Temples and Markets for the best customer service-quick sticks delivery and the attention to details.
Thanks for the awareness and the sense of achievement when I have when I have purchased responsibly.
Love the earrings. They look better than in the photo. I had bought the necklace from a local jewelry shop but they didn’t have the matching. Was very pleased to find them in the Temples & Markets online store. Posted out fo me quickly in a padded bag for protection.
These cufflinks are surprisingly strong in construction, with a subtle design and a relatively small presence. Great for a gift which has the right sentiments, and not being flashy.
Delighted with my white marble effect earrings with gold hooks, an added luxurious look .They blend with my bracelet . ( one of my firsts purchases from T&M ) . Packaged securely to U.K.
Thank you Temples & Markets for bringing back the

Thrilled with my Desti Saint envelope clutch that I bought on sale. It is well made and true to the picture.
"Shoppers Paradise" might not be what comes to mind when you think of Vietnam, particularly if you're not familiar with the country, or perhaps you have only visited once on a whistle stop tour. But for me, Vietnam offers some of the world's best shopping experiences.
To discover more of the best of Vietnam shopping you’ll need to venture a short taxi drive away from the centre of Hanoi to Tay Ho Lake District (also known as West Lake) and in Saigon, to Thao Dien in District 2. These are the areas where the expats shop so it’s where you’ll find some of the best representation of Vietnamese artisan made fashion and homewares.
Why do I love Washable Paper Bags and think they are the best choice for vegan leather bag shoppers? Because they are crafted from material that:
