We are fortunate to meet black H’Mong women in traditional costumes in Sapa Vietnam, passionately explaining the process, meaning, value of the clothes they are wearing and their concerns about the future. this hard work. The process to make a garment goes through many stages: planting, harvesting, pounding yarn, spinning, weaving, dyeing, embroidering patterns, sometimes it takes 2-3 months to complete a set. clothes to wear. That makes the price much higher than imported industrial brocade products. The sisters also realized that their products have not attracted tourists because the techniques and textures are still rudimentary and have not met the needs of customers. Even women themselves are gradually replacing traditional costumes with more compact and convenient products.


Therefore, how to preserve the cultural diversity of traditional weaving as well as create sustainable livelihoods for people in Sapa Vietnam? That’s the question that we always think about when going to practice with the GREAT Project. The systematization of the brocade linen weaving process, connecting leading experts in guiding people to optimize traditional linen products, and raising awareness of cultural diversity are ways to indirectly support people. H’Mong found a way to develop their economy while preserving their own culture and identity.

GREAT project – Promoting gender equality through improving economic efficiency of agricultural production and tourism development in two provinces of Lao Cai and Son La – funded by the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) with a total funding of 33.7 million Australian dollars (equivalent to about 600 billion Vietnam Dong) to promote gender equality and improve economic rights for women, especially ethnic minority women in the Northwest region of Vietnam. Through cooperation with 50 partners from business, state and non-governmental sectors, including partners in Sapa Vietnam such as Sa Pa Department of Culture and Information, Lan Rung Brocade Company, Mai Cooperative UK and the Red Dao Community Cooperative, GREAT is expected to help increase income for more than 40,000 women and improve confidence and decision-making ability in family, community and society.
