The event titled “Traditions, Innovations and Interactions: Paving a Creative Path for Traditional Textiles of Southeast Asia” is expected to draw over 200 local as well as international guests.
Producers, researchers, designers and artisans from traditional weaving villages of 11 ethnic groups would represent Vietnam along with members of the Vietnam Textiles Association.
