Meet Our Founder
My name is Tran Thi Viet. Back in 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 despite various struggles. This is the most significant reason motivating 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 knew how to weave since they were little girls. Moreover, by doing business efficiently, we can preserve and develop our tradition by passing down through younger generations. Finally, we desire to promote sustainable lifestyle with eco-friendly natural fibers products. With exquisite weaving craftsmanship that was inherited through decades by our ancestors, it is high time we share our heritage with the world.
