what is Chula?
“Chula is a Spanish adjective that means ‘something different, something special, cool’. You can use it as well to describe a woman who is proud of who she is and doesn’t care what people think about her.
We wanted to create something personal rooted in the local culture, but with a global flair and a language everyone could understand.
Chula is like a family, it´s a slow fashion company, it´s a cultural hub, it´s a meeting point for people...
where fashion is just an excuse"
Our philosophy believes in inclusion, cultural traditions, happiness of life, sense of humor, handmade fashion and suitable small-scale projects.

My husband Diego, and I, arrived in Hanoi in 2004 as a young couple. Almost instantly, we fell in love with Vietnam, feeling inspired by the people, the food, the colors... But also the fabrics and crafts surrounding us everywhere.
Chula started in our home, just us and a sewing machine, trying to turn our ideas into reality. A fashion brand reflecting our love and admiration for Vietnam, its culture, and its people. It is our own form of wearable art, incorporating culture in all of our creations and combining simplicity in shape with unique designs.
Over time, Chula has transformed into much more than just a fashion brand; it has become a community and cultural landmark. Today I want to keep growing the Chula family we have all come to love.
