Meet the Artist
Pham Duc Tri and Pham Minh Thien, two brothers have been making wooden stamps for 20 years. They are the fourth generation in their family to ply with this trade. After mastering the art under their grandfather, they inherited the Phuc Loi trademark, established in 1923. Although they spend most of their time making custom stamps for local and international clients, they enjoy making stamps that others can’t – such as – old drawings and calligraphy writings.
