A Long Journey Of Passion and Patience (OMBH Homeware)

Though (OMBH homeware) is based in Sunderland (UK), we are a UK - Vietnam family business created since 2015 from interests of family and friends toward wooden lacquers brought to the UK from Vietnam after travel trips. Our lacquerware work is a family history involved 3 generation over 50 years starting from small objects as spools, chopsticks, then growing over the year with expertise in lacquer techniques and variety of products. In the old age when Vietnam was very poor place, the lacquer oil was produced by our own hands grinding cashew nuts to powders before cooking to extract its oil for lacquer painting. The image of our grandfather sitting on small stool to dip every single chopstick in the lacquer oil, then paint every bamboo leaves on the items has been always the memory imprinted in our minds.


Throughout the years, from a small workshop making simple objects to support the family, we have learnt and grown so much sophisticated  expertise in lacquerware employing eggshell, seashell, silver and gold leaves for the work. Above all the skilful techniques, it is the passion and the patience that we put into every stages of the work to maintain our authenticity. That is quality, beauty and uniqueness of each item.

From inherence of traditional lacquerware techniques on solid wood, we have also developed our own states empowering vibrant colours onto products and/or diversify various shapes and styles. Beyond that, OMBH has collaborated with artisan and manufactures in Vietnam working on bamboo wares and coconut wares. The eco friendly business vision is further developed using these recycled materials as coconut shells and sustainable source such as bamboo. Throughout the years with growing interests from customers and the trend of eco friendly lifestyle, our product has increased  into various homeware ranges from bamboo placemats, wooden tray, bowl and plates, coasters, lampshades to metal vehicle models and greeting cards. with over 300 items on sale.
