Van Phuc Village, located 10km west of Ha Noi’s centre, has a hundred-year history of handicrafts.

Its products were first introduced to the world at the Marseille Fair in 1931 and in Paris in 1932, where they were called delicate handicraft products of Indochina

Between 1958 and 1988, the village’s products were exported to eastern European countries before being exported to other countries all over the world starting in 1990. — VNS
