VIETNAMESE TEXTILES

Art on the loom

Linen was found in local ancient tombs dating four thousand years ago which is around the time Vietnam was born. There are 432 textile villages in Vietnam employing 136,000 producers. Visiting textile villages today, you will hear the familiar clatter of the shuttle driving melody, you can see villagers spinning under the moonlight, you can see multicolor silk streams being dried under the sunshine. The weavers are passing their sentiments and dreams onto every meter of their products.
