Luu Thuong grass weaving village

VietNamNet Bridge - Discover Luu Thuong village, Phuc Tuc commune, Phu Xuyen district, Hanoi, to witness the methods used to produce exquisite products made of guot grass (a species of fern). This craft has been preserved here since the 17th century.

Luu Thuong villagers take "guot" grass from the northern mountainous provinces of Yen Bai, Lang Son, Cao Bang and Bac Kan, where this species of fern is very popular and is of optimal quality.

They combine ‘guot’ with other materials such as sedge, corn leaves, rattan, bamboo and water hyacinths, to create various products with thousands of different designs.

In addition to being favoured in domestic market, Luu Thuong’s products have been exported to many foreign countries around the world including the US, China, Japan, Thailand, Taiwan, India and various nations in the Middle East.

Let's see how Luu Thuong people process beautiful craft products from "guot" grass:
