Viet Nam is the house of greater than fifty ethnic minorities--such because the Cham and Thai--many of that have special garments and weaving traditions associated with antiquity. The tight-fitting tunic known as ao dai, widely known as a countrywide image, has its roots within the country's 2,000-year background of textiles. starting with silk construction within the Bronze Age cultures of the purple River, this e-book covers textiles in Viet Nam--including bark-cloth, kapok and hemp--through the centuries of chinese language rule within the north, a couple of autonomous feudal societies and the short interval of French colonial rule.
