Variations from Zèng fabric

TTH.VN - Currently, A Luoi locals have been creating many small and fashionable products to serve customers' needs from Zèng fabric, which is usually only used to sew shirts, skirts, and loincloths.

It takes a lot of time and effort to weave a piece of Zèng fabric with patterns.

As the leftover fabric after sewing traditional costumes of ethnic minorities is wasted, some people take advantage of it to make bags, purses, hair clips, hair bands, and earrings, etc. The price of each item ranges from a few tens of thousands to 200,000 VND depending on its quality and design. These products are very popular in the market; especially, they meet the needs of visitors.

Thanks to these small, fashion, and affordable products, the craft of making them both creates additional income and contributes to diversify products from the traditional Zèng fabric in A Luoi. These products are available at A Luoi fair, some homestays, or at the address of 48 Bac Son, A Luoi Town.

Following are some photos of the process of making these products and visitors buying them, taken by Thua Thien Hue Online:
