TRADITIONAL WEAVING NETWORK OF THE CENTRAL HIGHLANDS VIETNAM
This network was created to preserve and revive the traditional weaving heritage of local communities. Their textiles are handwoven by six ethnic minority groups in Central Vietnam – Ta Oi, Cotu, Gie Trieng, Bana, E De and Ma – who weave on backstrap looms significantly different from each other. Cloths are patterned by hanging colourful threads vertically to create geometric motifs during weaving which stand out from their dark background. Cotu and Ta Oi also weave beads into the textiles to create unique motifs.
