A few years ago, traditional village of Phu Vinh rattan much excitement, but unfortunately that recently rattan products is declining orders, so some people had moved to other jobs!
Hoang Van Hanh artisans lucky to be born in the family weaving tradition (Hoang Van biological father is former area known artisan in the village). From a small boy, his father taught Hanh, plus the inherent passion so he Hanh is dedicated to her craft rattan.
In 1988, after completing the task of volunteer soldiers on the ground in Laos, Hoang Van Hanh young man right in the context of rural villages are "dilemma", dismayed, he was "South progress "in Bien Hoa (Dong Nai) to find the cause, learn about bamboo and rattan. At that time, weaving in Phu Vinh risk losing. Hoang Van Hanh I remembered, with traditional heavy heart should go study hard, learn in the traditional village, just the desire to keep his father's job, just hoping to bring more new jobs village, commune.
Congenial
After nearly 10 years away from home in search tirelessly in many provinces in the south, he realized Hanh Binh Duong ceramic color match the color rattan in the traditional village of Phu Vinh. Home with empty hands, Hoang Van Hanh began raising enriched media from traditional rattan. In early 2001, Hanh find "half" her by accident as in a dream:
- This year, I had the good fortune to teach and transmit bamboo and rattan in Dong Son commune, Chuong My district. Do not understand the reason how that girl Linda who turns 20 years old at that time to craft enthusiast and keen affinity with "teacher" Happiness ... And we're so charming couple.

Rarely has a couple family "same boat", and was awarded the artist as his family Hoang Van Hanh. Mrs Linda (his wife Hanh) State-recognized artist in 2011, telling about the grace with rattan craft:

- A cold winter night in late 2005, half the night I saw him sleeping quietly Hanh called up (then 2-year-old nephew, new niece was 2 months old). My husband gently said, if we do not fear tomorrow I'll just forget the idea ... Turns out he thinks the new models and offered up his wife to the same design. So that night the couple awake to product design. And also thanks to two sample products composed that night, the couple they won first prize and two runner contest.
Treaty of artisans couple
For product durable, termite, do not lose the natural color of the product, artisans wife Linda - Happy knitting studied carefully, how to make color work that his father had done, but determined not to use industrial chemicals and colors. Hoang Van Hanh artisans confided:
- To create the texture of black (black), instead of using black paint I have oak leaves, leaf eagle, black inserting leaves guava leaves and boiled thoroughly to extract a matching black water stuff. Then, for technical products to soak in this water and take out, dry. Then soak in the mud from time 5 to 7 days to ensure that the food color to make the core. Thus, despite the use of many years, color has not faded away. Or to create a natural yellow color without using paint, we will use the short straw cut about 5cm, then entered the pit with a wide mouth to burn and "steam" product. In the process of burning straw must be adjusted so that the straw that generates white smoke to the surface of the product natural yellow ...

Happy to chat with him, we learned that weaving also mold its level, which is the method, the principle of knitting techniques, installed. Whether or artisan workers also must adhere to the mold that level, absolute negligence to avoid errors in product ... Our observation that highlights the product in a couple of artist Linda - Happiness is a finely woven techniques. They have cleverly combine traditional weaving styles with innovative weaving styles to make the cube healthy, certainly consistent with contemporary art. Products that young couples innovative technologies are diverse, ranging from functional objects to contain ornaments ...
In the story revolves around traditional villages nearly 400 years old Vinh Phu, Hoang Van Hanh every artist desires: The village of Phu Vinh bamboo and rattan are looking forward to the end, the industry registered trademarks sooner to conserve and development of villages nearly 400 years old. Currently, the traditional villages of Phu Vinh bamboo and rattan are facing very difficult situation, partly due to scarcity of raw materials, partly because their products at low prices. Meanwhile, the younger generation is no longer interested now with more craft, racing hired immediately earn money so they are increasingly leaving villages ...
Although Phu Vinh village is in the midst of "tormented", but we certainly believe there will be "future state", because in the village there are talented people, dedicated to her craft artisans as husband and wife Linda - Hanh.
