Each set includes a selection of 6 different images from our Indochine B&W postcard range: smiling women from Tonkin*, a wealthy woman from Cochinchine*, our poster boy, Duy Tan, the Emperor of Annam*, a Tonkinese Mandarin and a young musician with a cheeky smile.
Printed with black ink onto medium weight, off-white, cotton canvas fabric.
These coasters will hold up to daily use and are easy to wash: just throw them into the washing machine.
Each image is from an old French postcard from the Indochine B&W Collection.
Designed, printed and sewn in our Very Ngon Homewares workshop.
* From the mid-1800s to mid-1900s, Vietnam was divided by the French into 3 administrative regions: Tonkin in the north (including Ha Noi); centrally-located Annam (including Hue and Hoi An, formerly known as Faifoo); and Cochinchine to the south (including Saigon).
Please note that while we print 8 different images, each set consists of only 6 images. We mix and match the most suitable images for each set which results in a different mix of images from one set to the next. Unfortunately we cannot accept requests for specific images per set.
