WELLFABRIC is the fabric division of Bao Lan Textile Co., Ltd. We are one of the pioneering sustainable textile wholesalers in Vietnam. We started in 2011 in Ho Chi Minh City. The mission of WELLFABRIC is to promote the development of sustainable fashion by making eco fabrics appealing, intriguing, accessible, and affordable. Our strength lies in fabric research and development. We closely collaborate with textile engineers and universities to innovate and produce new eco fabrics every year.
We acknowledge that we are not perfect. We strive to minimize carbon emissions and protect the environment to the best of our ability. However, we continue to innovate, improve, and adapt to eventually achieve full sustainability. In the meantime, we will offset our carbon emissions by engaging in more social initiatives and contributing to non-profit environmental organizations based in Vietnam.
We sell Eco fabric in small quantities to help fashion designers and brands start with their first collection. We also produce Eco fabric in large quantities to reduce costs and support brands in scaling up.
We envision a future where people can easily choose a sustainable and nature-aligned lifestyle. We imagine a future where the clothes we wear daily not only have style and appearance but also contribute to our well-being and the environment.

WELLFABRIC exists thanks to the founder’s parents and his experience in New Zealand. The founder’s name is Dave Quach, and this is how he tells his story.
“I was born in 1983 in District 5, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. District 5 is where the famous wholesale market called ‘Cho Lon’ is located.
My mother used to be a fabric wholesaler in District 5 until the end of the Vietnam War. Back then, the focus of business was more on sustaining the family’s income rather than maintaining the environment. Thanks to the efforts and success of my parents, I was able to follow in their footsteps and establish Bao Lan Textile in 2011.
At first, I didn’t know what kind of business I should pursue. All I knew was that it had to be unique and sustainable. So, I chose to start a business specializing in sustainable fabrics in Vietnam. At that time, it seemed crazy because there was still no market for Eco fabrics.
I often found myself disagreeing with my own direction, but my parents taught me to pursue a career that I love and not give up when facing significant challenges. I stayed the course. I was passionate about promoting eco fabrics, even though I had to confront many obstacles. Up until now, I have managed to sustain my wholesale business of sustainable fabrics in Vietnam.”
After my first company, Bao Lan Textile Limited Liability Company, was established, we introduced Greenyarn as our first branded product.
Greenyarn sells environmentally friendly fibers with a sustainable story. Greenyarn specializes in researching, sourcing, developing, and distributing melange fibers, recycled fibers, and organic fibers. This laid the foundation for me to become a wholesale distributor of sustainable fabrics in Vietnam.
Greenyarn’s customers are fabric manufacturers and fashion brands. Our customers convert the fibers into fabrics and either wholesale them or use them for their own production. We manage the importation, warehousing, and development of new products. We offer small quantities thanks to our good relationships with sustainable fiber suppliers across Southeast Asia. All the experience in fiber sales has helped us confidently become a wholesale distributor of sustainable fabrics in Vietnam.
When the fiber business was running smoothly, we took a step further by opening a fabric division called WELLFABRIC. The goal was to develop and sell various types of sustainable fabrics.
We had this idea based on numerous complaints from customers. They believed that sustainable fabrics were too expensive, difficult to find, and lacked variety. The transition from fiber to fabric is a natural process that encouraged us to build our network of textile experts.
We reached out to universities, textile engineers, weavers, and dyers to collaborate and promote sustainable fabric options in Vietnam. This is how we became a sustainable fabric wholesaler in Vietnam. While most of our yarn comes from our own supply chains, we occasionally purchase yarn from suppliers outside of our partner network. Using our own supply of Greenyarn allows us to control the cost and quality of WELLFABRIC. We strive to be a dependable sustainable fabric wholesaler in Vietnam and work diligently to accelerate the growth of sustainable fashion.

During the first two decades after the Vietnam War, life was challenging for everyone. My family faced hardships but never gave up. At that time, my mother longed for a new pair of pants, but my grandparents couldn’t afford it as they had more pressing priorities. She made a deal with my father-to-be, agreeing to marry the groom he chose in exchange for a pair of pants. Instead of getting married right away, she chose to receive the fabric to make a pair of pants, and she fell in love with this type of fabric. From that moment on, she knew she wanted to work in the textile and clothing business. She started her fabric business in 1979.
Eventually, my mother married another man, my father, and they became experts in importing and trading textiles. This marked the beginning of our sustainable fabric wholesale business in Vietnamese history.
My parents purchased fabrics from Singapore in the 80s, India in the 90s, and then started sourcing from China in 2001. During these years, my parents relied on their sixth sense to determine the value of a fabric. They didn’t have or know about technical specifications. They simply knew what their customers liked and evaluated a fabric based on its appearance and feel. They would rub the fabric against the inside of their forearm to assess its quality. They knew whether it would be suitable for the Vietnamese market and at what price they should buy it. Their fabric trading business grew year by year, and they became a sustainable fabric wholesaler in Vietnam.
My parents passed on their passion for textiles and their business acumen to my brother and me. Both of us work in the textile business based in Ho Chi Minh City, with a strong network of factories across Southeast Asia. I focus on eco-friendly fabrics, while my brother specializes in importing high-end woven fabrics from China. How can we assist you?
I am grateful that my parents sent me to New Zealand for education. I studied and worked in New Zealand for 10 years. New Zealand is a beautiful country with clean air, pristine water, majestic mountains, and lush green fields. It was in New Zealand where I developed my passion for travel and nature. Thanks to New Zealand, I later became a sustainable fabric wholesaler in Vietnam. My experiences in New Zealand guided me towards sustainability and the desire to make the world a better place everywhere.
Not only did I find my calling in New Zealand, but I also met my wife there. We studied together at Massey University in Auckland. We now have two children and travel between Vietnam and China, where her family resides. Her family’s textile business helped me kickstart my career as a sustainable fabric wholesaler in Vietnam.
