The natives

This is the culture, tiny yet colossal, vivid and lively, born out of colours and patterns which are indeed the trust towards sustainability and the promise to move forward. This is the story of a community known so little yet contains such power over traditional hues which binds the happy people of Dao comunity in Vietnam together. I chose this community to understand the need of traditional and modern bonding which human civilisation has yet again misunderstood. What is so special about this community is the age old custom of weaving through a form of pattern which is a part of their practice since ancient times. The colours are so vibrant and beautifully adorned with natural dyes and weaving patterns, gives the necessity of passion to thrive forward through inexplicable understanding of their relationship with their nature.
Their weaving patterns are intriguing. They involve various VAN patterns, of different shapes and sizes which the people have always believed in doing so by hand. This age old custom and tradition is a part of their sustainable livelihood, so culturally aesthetic.
