KENLY SILK - A TOUCH OF CLASS
Along Hanoi's Hang Gai street (known appropriately as Silk Street), Kenly Silk, established since 1994, is one of the original silk shops and enjoys a high reputation with ex-pats and tourists alike. Previous clients inlude diplomats, New Zealand PM Jenny Bolger, a Brunei Princess and Bill Clinton's mother-in-law, no less! This family establishment prides itself on excellent service (staff speak a range of languages) and high-quality materials: only the finest Vietnamese silks (taffeta, raw, satin, etc), cottons and linens are used. Prices reflect the high quality.

The showcase shop has three floors and a fabulous range of silk garments and exquisite embroidered goods, many hand-made. At ground level, ladies ready-to-wear garments include striking ao dais, featuring more up-to-date styles (around $39), dresses, tops (around US$28), plus luxurious throw scarves ($17-42), cashmere goods, lingerie and silk accessories. The first floor is set aside for men, with pyjamas, shirts, and ready-to-wear silk suits (around $115). A small café area provides complimentary soft drinks and beer, for those waiting on others to make their minds-up! The second floor has an extensive range of glorious hand-made silk shoes in a range of colours (around $15). Kenly Silk also prides itself on an extensive range of high-quality embroidered cotton items. These include children's clothes with traditional smocking, hand-made quilts, (around $68), duvet covers, embroidered pictures and tablecloth sets ($53). Made-to-order clothes (including wedding dress orders) are in the hands of highly skilled tailors originating from HCMC (reputedly the best in Vietnam). They also have a shop in HCMC: if you order in Hanoi, you can collect in HCMC and vice-versa; it's perfect if you are travelling around the country.
