….Vietnam is considered one of the worlds birthplaces of the ancient art of weaving, having a rich history dating back thousands of years.
With around 54 distinct ethnic groups in Vietnam it should come as no surprise that the bounty of handmade woven and embroidered artistic pieces are almost endless. Using natural materials and fibers such as bamboo, rattan, sea grass, water hyacinth, hemp, silk and natural dyes, products such as baskets, tapestries, mats, bags, rugs, hats, toys and even furniture and boats have been fashioned by hand from these locally grown raw materials.
