Project Description

Vietnamese Brocade is a type of woven fabric made from raw cotton, flax or hemp, and is rich in texture and motifs.  It is typically dyed various colors; and sometimes wax is painted on portions of the woven fabric before the dyeing process, to prevent those portions from absorbing the dye.

The brocade weaving patterns are derived primarily from the traditional methods of three (3) ethnic minorities: the Mong people from northern Ha Giang province; the Ta Oi people from central Thua Thien; and the Cham people from Ninh Thuan province.  Their weaving traditions are preserved and passed down through the skillful hands of the women in the family.
