Vietnam at its best

For the Piet Hein Eek vase FairForward S Crane, Fair Trade Original approached Piet Hein Eek to collaborate with Vietnamese potters. For generations, these artisans have been using the same methods of painting ceramics. Thanks to this partnership, Vietnam's traditional colors and motifs have been given a vibrant new lease of life. The FairForward vase S Crane is a true designer vase that goes surprisingly well in a Western interior. With or without a flower arrangement!


FairForward designs fair trade gifts and home accessories under the Fair Trade Original label. An assurance that the Piet Hein Eek vase is produced fairly and that the Vietnamese potters can actually make a living from their work. So we are investing in a sustainable future!

Combination of tradition & Eek

Piet Hein Eek is possibly best known for his scrap wood furniture. Piet Hein takes what the average Dutch person would consider rubbish, and transforms it into a stylish design piece. This time, for the FairForward vase, Eek took up the challenge of working with ancient traditions. The Vietnamese enamel painters were asked to give their traditional prints a modern twist. What happened? The original colors and motifs that we recognize as Vietnamese go well together with modern shapes. Even though the FairForward design vase S Crane is contemporary, the historical patterns and techniques remain. The Piet Hein Eek ceramic vase FairForward is 20 cm high and has a 24 cm diameter. The white vase is printed with a traditional pattern of black cranes (the symbol of a long and happy life). These bulb-shaped vases from Piet Hein are also available with a Vietnamese blue print.
