Under planning to 2020 and vision to 2025, attention will be paid to the restoration of several craft villages like Thanh Tien village, which makes paper flowers, the Pho Trach mattress-making village, and villages with traditional “ao dai” tailoring and lacquer making, among others. Further efforts will be made to protect Zeng weaving of the Ta Oi ethnic minority in Nam Dong and A Luoi districts, which was recognized as a national intangible cultural heritage in 2017.

Thua Thien Hue is currently home to 86 villages that focus on 57 traditional handicrafts and crafts.
