Vietnam famous handicraft furniture at Dong Ky carpentry villages
In the past, after harvest time, Vietnamese people made handicraft works (such as: vietnam famous handicraft furniture,…) to meet their own needs. Their products are very skillful and sophisticated, even though they are farmers and do not specialize in handicrafts. The techniques were kept secret, but taught to relatives or fellow villagers.
The village, therefore, became a very important institution in the handicraft industry. The village’s name became the trademark of handicraft products made by its villagers. The village’s temple became the place of worship and founder – the man who first taught the villagers to do these handicraft works.
When urbanization came to Vietnam, many people came to towns/cities and professionalized in the handicraft works they had done in their old village. They did not compete with one another but gathered in phường/hội, the new form of handicraft village, to help others to improve.
The Vietnamese government has recognised about 1500 handicraft villages, of which about 300 are traditional handicraft villages. These villages maintain the country’s handicraft heritage.
We introduce one of handicraft villages:
Dong Ky Carpentry Village
Dong Ky was at one time known as the ‘firecracker village’. Prior to 1995 (when the Government banned fire crackers) there was always a firecracker festival in Dong Ky. A competition for the loudest firecracker once resulted in the fortress with lenght 16m.
With the firecracker industry now extinguished, the village survives by producing beautiful traditional furniture inlaid with pearl. If you wish, you can have handcrafted furniture custom-made here and exported directly to your address abroad. Negotiation the payment if you are leaving Vietnam before the final product is produced and shipped. Dong Ky is far 15km from north-east of Hanoi capital of Vietnam.
Those who visit Dong Ky Carpentry Village in northern Bac Ninh province for the first time may feel surprised to see multi-storey buildings sitting side-by-side hundreds of company billboards and showrooms.
