NDO – The recent 2018 Craft Link’s Handicraft Bazaar attracted many traditional products made by ethnic minority groups, people with disabilities and traditional craft villages across the country.

Ranging from brocade products made by the Thai, Dao, Lo Lo ethnic groups and wax patterns produced by the H’mong people to the distinctive aroma of herbs by Day people, the bazaar brought together all of the cultural charms of Vietnamese tribes to the Vietnamese Museum of Ethnology.

Through their projects, the Centre for Handicraft Research, Linkage and Development, also known as Craft Link, has provided ethnic minority groups and people living in difficult circumstances with the necessary skills on the managing, accounting, marketing and improving techniques so that they can create high-quality and marketable products.

By attending the bazaar, the targeted groups not only had a chance to sell their products but also explore more about customers’ consumption habits and behaviours.

The bazaar also included demonstrations of brocade weaving and embroidery, entertainment activities and folk games.
