Van Phuc Silk Village
Step into another 1,000-year-old lively relic of Vietnam! Ceremonial costumes of Nguyen Kings were made of silk from this village. Since 1958, the village’s masterpieces have been exported to Eastern European countries, expanding to many other countries afterward.
Apart from being exported widely and it’s economic value, the silk plays an important role in the mental life of the villagers. Every year, when it comes to the birthday celebration of an elder in the village, it is the traditional silk that is always chosen as the gift. This gift represents the whole process of growing the mulberry, raising silkworms, collecting the silk yarn, to creating delicate textures through love; ultimately showcasing this traditional occupation. This is what keeps Van Phuc Silk alive. If you try making your clothes with silk from this village, you will notice that it cools you down in the heat and warms you up in the breeze, like people always say.
Taking a Grab or getting a taxi is the most recommended means of transport for you. A forty-minute drive is what you can expect.
