Craft products displayed at the Hue Festival
The crafts originated centuries ago since the formation of the villages and today the villagers maintain the crafts for their livelihood. Hue is home to a lot of traditional craft villages as artisans from other localities once gathered here to serve the royal needs during the time Hue was the feudal capital under the Nguyen Dynasty (1802-1945)’s rule.
Many of the village remain their production and manage to adapt to modern life. Local authorities have made the list of 16 traditional craft villages and other 10 craft communities to monitor and support their development./.
