Albert L. (punkt) was founded in 2006 and started selling the first edition of the bamboo product line that we manufacture in Vietnam. The idea evolved through a German-Vietnamese friendship between Nguyen Thi Than Mai and Sandra Schroeder. The albert L. (punkt) products are all traditionally handcrafted, striving to support the conventional social structures. Hanoi’s craft villages hold cultural values that are built up and crystalized after generations of craftsmen here. At these villages, there are so many skillful craftsmen that the entire village becomes a large manufacturing center, like bamboo, ceramic, rattan etc.
