Traditional crafts introduced in Hanoi's Old Quarter

Four traditional handicrafts associated with Hanoians' daily life in the past are reappearing at four addresses in the Old Quarter from August 5.

This chain of cultural events is organised by the Management Board of Hanoi's Old Quarter to mark the occasion of the August Revolution (August 19) and National Day (September 2).

At Dong Lac communal house, No. 38 Hang Dao Street, dozens of Hanoian costumes such as ao dai (long dresses) for girls and clothes worn by officials, ladies, soldiers and working people, will be on display. The costumes from 1945 - 1954 remind people of the past and help them understand more about the life and customs of old Hanoi.

Kim Ngan communal house at No. 42-44 Hang Bac is presenting products from the Quynh Boi craft village in Bac Ninh province, a bronze casting village associated with the development of the land of Thang Long - Ke Cho. The works on display range from decorative items such as bronze drums, statues, and bells, to valuable bronze paintings, vases, and pots.

Lacquer art is being shown in the heritage house at No. 87 Ma May Street with a display and presentation of both traditional and modern items. The Hanoi Old Quarter Information Centre at No.28 Hang Buom Street will have an exhibition of Vietnamese ceramics.

“In the bustling life of modern society, traditional villages in Hanoi still have their own vitality, contributing to preserving the cultural identity of the 1000-year-old capital city. However, for a long time, the villages have not received proper attention. We are very happy to know that in the future, many projects will be implemented to preserve and develop traditional craft villages so as to maintain their rightful position,” said artisan Tran Van Vinh, Deputy Head of the Hanoi Artisans' Club.
