Traditional Vietnamese Embroidery
Hand Embroidery is a traditional Vietnamese handcraft which can be traced back to over 700 years ago. For many years it was extremely popular and the mainstay of many women and young girls’ lives. Girls were expected to grow up knowing how to embroider and used these skills to decorate handkerchiefs, cushion covers and tablecloths. The tradition was passed from generation to generation who perfected the embroidery techniques. Since the 1960s, hand embroidery painting which is the most complex, difficult and exquisite form of Vietnamese hand embroidery has experienced a growth in demand. From a distance, embroidery paintings look very smooth and mostly true to life with all of its subtle changes of hues and colours mimicked in the work. Up close you will be amazed by the texture created by hundreds of thousands of tiny stitches and how well they are blended together.
Made exclusively by hand, each painting may take anything from a few weeks to a few months to finish, with more demanding works sometimes requiring years to complete. The highly-skilled embroidery artist uses his artistic talent to adjust the lines, shapes and shade of colours to achieve perfect execution of an image, on a roughly sketched piece of cloth. To complete a piece, the artist might have to use up to 500 different types and colours of thread. This is the secret to the liveliness and vibrancy of an embroidery painting.
