An Overview of Ha Thai Lacquerware Village's History

Ha Thai Village was established in the 17th century, at the beginning of the lacquer art's development. At the time, it was known as "Cu Trang" Village; although not being the birthplace of Vietnamese lacquer traditions, this location was respected for its wealth of brilliant and skilled artisans. To present goods to the kings and patricians, "Cu Trang" was chosen.

Due to several historical developments and modifications, this ancient hamlet began to expand the lacquer coats used in the art. The residents' art was passed down through the centuries, enriching the village's collections of lacquerware. Initially, there were just three colors available for the goods: black, red, and brown. The number of coat colors has risen through numerous tries and has been adorned with numerous designs. Each stage of this complex profession requires the artists to exercise patience, strict attention to detail, and caution. If not, the finished products could not be as flawless as anticipated.
