Speaking of coconut artistic incarnations of living things with much diversified, first to mention one of the first person is his school bag by the Bank with the coconut leaf stalks (instead of raw rattan bamboo). Products launched in 1987.
One day, he accidentally Trinh Van Y - Vice Chairman to visit time and see instant he solemnly told the School Bank (Ten Bar): "This is the intellectual property of Ben Tre, you must preserve and promotion, we will support. "

His words are worth marking his successful road Banking School, and the entire industry producing coconut handicrafts in general!
People from the place or on the basis of information has poured his free way to learn basket making. Especially people of Hung Phong, Phuoc Long (Giong Trom) has now developed into a village craft basket with coconut stems.
