Legend has it that from 1258, when King Tran Thai Tong turned 40 years old, ceded the throne to his son and became Thai Thuong Hoang, he returned to Vu Lam mountain to practice and establish a base of resistance against the Nguyen Mong for the second time (1285). Ms. Tran Thi Dung is the wife of Master Tran Thu Do (teacher of the king), who came here to teach the people of Van Lam village the craft of embroidery. Thus, this craft village has existed for over 700 years.
