Weaving and Dying Textiles and EmbroideryBack
Vietnam has 400 traditional craft villages that make a living from producing some kind of handicraft products. These villages help preserve Vietnam’s cultural and historical heritage. In Cao Bang there is a high density of farming villages that are specialised in the production of handicraft products such as for example blacksmith products, rattan, basket-weaving, weaving and dying textiles and embroidery. Depending on which village you visit you will be able to see and participate in the production of different types of handicrafts and buy your own very unique souvenir. You can for example weave textiles and then dye them with natural materials. Making embroidery under the guidance of local ethnic minority women is a relaxing activity and you can see how their beautiful traditional clothes are decorated. By purchasing these unique handicrafts, you are not only giving yourselves, family or friends a special treat but are helping ethnic minorities improve their livelihoods.
