Festival brings Hue traditional craft products to the world

The biennial Hue Traditional Craft Festival, which honors the value of heritage and raises the quality of traditional trade villages, has helped Vietnamese handicraft products reach out to the world.

Fostering the revival and development of craft villages is the biggest advantage that the festival has brought about, said artisan Than Van Huy from the Thanh Tien paper flower village.

The biennial Hue Traditional Craft Festival has been a launching pad for “Zeng” weaving of Ta Oi ethnic.

Thanh Tien paper lotus has been present in many countries like the US, Japan and the Republic of Korea, Huy said, adding that various contracts have been signed since the village joined the festival for the first time in 2013.

For “Zeng” weaving of Ta Oi ethnic in A Luoi district, Thua Thien-Hue province, the festival served as a launching pad for the traditional craft to be recognized as a national intangible cultural heritage in 2017. The textile products have been introduced in Japan and France by fashion designer Minh Hanh.

Meanwhile, Bao La village on the northern bank of Bo River in Quang Dien district is now much busier than ever before as hundreds of workers are rushing off their feet to make bamboo products to satisfy large orders in such large markets as Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City, Quang Nam province, China and Japan.

According to Vo Van Dinh, Director of the Bao La Bamboo & Rattan Cooperative, the festival opens opportunities for the village to gain favor from both domestic and foreign consumers.

Chairman of the Hue city People’s Committee Nguyen Van Thanh affirmed that the festival creates a platform for artisans across the country to show off their talent as well as promote the quintessence of traditional handicrafts.

The eighth Hue Traditional Craft Festival 2019 will take place from April 26 to May 2. More than 300 artisans from 63 trade villages nationwide have registered to present their products and perform handicraft skills at the event.

Various products will be featured, including jewelry, embroidery, brocade, silk, bronze casting, ao dai (Vietnamese traditional long dress), wood, textiles, ceramic, bamboo products, conical hats, paper flowers, kites, lanterns and food. Visitors will have the chance to make these products with the instruction of artisans.
