Description

Do paper is used for making the famous Dong Ho folk paintings. Aside from its traditional value, Do paper gained its popularity because of its durability, toughness, and delicate patterns unique to each surface.
Do paper production is still practiced in some Vietnamese villages and kept to the ancient techniques passed down through generations. However, the industrialization of paper-making posed a great threat to this traditional form of art. In order to preserve this practice, this project took the initiative to use Do in more modern products such as postcards, notebooks, and other decorative products.
In this activity, you will have chance to discover many interesting things behind this long-lasting paper craft and, you will learn about the beauty lying under rustic yet sophisticated woven fibers of Do paper.
