Chuong Village

Chuong village is far about 30 kilometers from Hanoi, is located on Ha Dong road-Huong Tich pagoda. Chuong village belongs to Phuong Trung commune, Thanh Oai Distric, Hanoi. According to the seniors, the 'non' craft has had for a long time. Grandfather made 'non', father made 'non', son made 'non', grandchildren made 'non'. All members in family make 'non', the village has only single job is making 'non'. Because all people in the village make 'non', the market has most 'non' and things to make 'non'. Market has meeting in June, the main session on 4th, 10th, 14th, 24th and 30th lunar. Today, despite people are not used these 'non' as often as it once was, the village market is still crowded and busy.

The main material for making “non” is palm leaf. Chuong villagers have to choose the white shoots from Phu Tho Province or “non” leaf from Ha Tinh Province. Bamboo hammocks and conical “non” must be imported from other provinces.

Not o­nly old people but also children in this village know how to make conical hats. They take advantage of leisure after harvest time to make hat. This occupation helps villagers increase their incomes, improve their living standards and contribute to bettering their home village.

“Non quai thao” a kind of conical hat with fringe hanging at both sides) has a unique beauty with pink fringes, 2 yellow and red silk tassels, which is suitable for girls in spring festivals, village festivities, “cheo” and “quan ho” folk music festivals.

Many Chuong villagers are good at making “non quai thao”, which is a special cultural feature of the Northern delta in Vietnam. The conical makers must be meticulous, skillful and have experience as the process is complicated, including choosing, arranging palm leaves, then sticking them o­n the conical ring, and sewing colorful thread. It sometimes takes the artisan a whole day to complete a nice “quai thao” conical hat.

Not o­nly is “quai thao” conical hat ordered by artistic troupes but it is also foreign tourists’ favorite souvenir. Many visitors from Germany, France, and England can’t help buying this unique souvenir when they arrive at Chuong Village.

Non from Chuong Village are well-known not only throughout Vietnam but also in China, Japan and Europe, where they are exported to. In the past, non from Chuong Village were sent to imperial palaces for queens, princesses and high-ranking ladies. Last year, it was made in an enormous size to introduce to leaders participating in the APEC 14 in Hanoi.
