With changing times and urbanisations, more villages are turning in to cities, and archaic images of bolt of silk drying on the fields, manual loom and the like slowly turn into history.

But despite this changing trend, Van Phuc silk village yet has skilled and industrious artisans who continue to maintain the reputation of Ha Dong silk.

A renowned silk weaver and member of Van Phuc Silk Weaving Craft Village Association for years, has always retained the idea of crafting new designs in silk, which can maintain the conventional features of Van Phuc silk and also simultaneously satisfy customer demands.

As per this artisan, silk is linked with the life of every Van Phuc villager, so much so, that every silk thread and the changes that have taken place in the life of Van Phuc people are weaved with historical events.

There was a time when weaving silk in the village was turning in to a dying profession. But skilled artisans considered goods made of silk as works of art and therefore, tried to bring life in to the goods by turning them lively and marvellous.

However, silk weavers and artisans have to face many challenges with the current market economy. In 2006, National Office of Intellectual Property of Vietnam gave due recognition to Ha Dong silk brand as the same is duplicated in several places and it is affecting the prestige of the craft village.

Since 2008, artisans and weavers have been urging the government to safeguard and help Ha Dong silk brand name grow. And in 2010, Ha Dong authorities decided to give out VND 1 million to every power-loom to help households weave Ha Dong silk brand on their goods.
