Xin ChĂ o

My name is Tran Thi Viet. Back to my childhood, our village was proud to be the oldest traditional village of seagrass handicraft making. At that time, everyone in the village worked on seagrass fields to do harvesting, processing raw materials and weaving them to make finished handicraft products. Especially, our seagrass products were very well known for its high quality material, durability and sophisticated techniques. Fortunately, until now, we are still able to keep our beautiful tradition lasting and continuously enhance it to meet international market standards for exporting although there still have been various struggles. This is the most significant reason motivating me to found Viet Trang Handicraft Company in 2001.

For me, Viet Trang means more than a business. By utilizing availability of local resources, we can leverage local economy, generate income for local artisans, specifically for the local women, who know how to weave when they were little girls. Moreover, by doing business efficiently, we can preserve and develop our tradition by passing down through younger generations. Finally, with our eco-friendly natural fibres products, we desire to promote sustainable lifestyle what we were taught by our ancestors and now we would like to share it with the world.
