About 100 traditional weavers from 10 Asean countries including Canada, India, Japan and the US are likely to participate in the 4th Asean Traditional Textile Symposium to be held in Thai Nguyen, a northern province of Vietnam, from March 15-18, 2013.
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.
Several researchers and producers would participate in the two scientific workshops — “From traditional textile villages to light industry trade” and “Conservation and promotion of traditional textiles in museums”.
Meanwhile, several cultural events like exhibitions, workshops and revelation of trade villages and their culture, fairs and fashion shows would also be held alongside the symposium.
