Basket Weaving


Baskets are important items in the household of ethnic minority people in Cao Bang. They are for example used to transport fresh fruit and vegetables to a local market to sell. Baskets are made of guot grass (a species of fern), a very popular grass that is of optimal quality in the mountainous provinces of Cao Bang, Lang Son, Yen Bai and Bac Kan. The guot grass is combined with other materials such as rattan, bamboo, sedge, corn leaves and water hyacinths. Various products with many different designs can be made. In our community-based tourism villages, you will have the chance to weave baskets yourself and purchase a beautiful souvenir that helps ethnic minorities to improve their livelihoods.
