There is a small village called Chuong in the suburban capital. It has maintained the reputation of making conical hats – one of the most famous costumes of Vietnam for over three centuries.

It’s about 40 kilometres from central of Hanoi to the village. Chuong’s famous Non was given the own pride by the villagers. In the past, the conical hats were used to hide the rain and the sun. They used a bamboo frame to fabricate and used the leaf to cover the conical hats. Each family can produce the conical hats. “Non la” has become a feature of Vietnamese culture.

Every year, they are producing thousands of Chuong village conical hats to beautify lives and many skilled artisans, who live and die with the craft of their ancestors are enriched. Chuong hat has 16 circles in a frame, the outermost is the biggest, most extensive, and following smaller cone circles progressively. To finish the hat they have to cover three layers of leaves, the beautiful hat is the light hat. A long time ago, when coming to Chuong village, you easily see someone sewing in anywhere. Children aged five to seven feed buffaloes and bring hats go set stitch, the elders chew betel and areca, chat and sew hats
