Van Phuc is located 15km to the west of Ha Noi. It is the best known silk village in Vietnam, and one of the best developed and most visited craft villages near Hanoi. In recent years, the Van Phuc village has enjoyed the revival of its craft due to a surging demand for silk in both the domestic and foreign markets. There’s still plenty of manual labour in Van Phuc’s silk production processes.
A highlight of a visit to Van Phuc will be an opportunity to see the old looms in operation.
