Ta Oi women sit on the floor, roll up a bamboo loom, stretch it with their legs. It takes nearly a month to weave a piece of brocade, 2-3m long. Zeng brocade also has many applications in home decoration, fashion design and crafting.

Ta Oi people live mainly in the mountains of central Vietnam, well known for their knitting and brocade weaving. The zeng brocade fabric of Ta Oi people contains many cultural and heritage values that need to be preserved. However, due to modernisation and changing lifestyle, brocade weaving of Ta Oi people also face challenges. We would like to join hands to support the mountainous people to maintain this traditional craft, improve their livelihoods, and contribute to the protection of environmental resources.
