Hoi An's traditional silk village


A silk village in Hoi An, Quang Nam Province, somewhat overlooked for a while, has seen a revival of tourism of late, attracting tourists.

 Ma Chau Village in Duy Xuyen District is just one kilometre away from centre of Hoi An City.

The combination of eco-tourism and traditional handicraft product development has helped to preserve the cultural life of people in Quang Nam.

Now, the village appears much more like in the past. Old looms in wooden houses, long unused, have been activated again. Besides the sight and sound of the moving looms, village also has green mulberry gardens and silkworm baskets. 

Scarves and dresses made of silk are on display throughout the village, showing off the traditional craft of the residents.

Visitors also have the chance to learn something about the fabric-weaving method of the Cham ethnic minority people as well as see special products of the area.
