Weaving Contest Festival

This is a traditional festival of Thi Cam village (Tu Liem, formerly belonging to Ha Dong). A bamboo tent is set up in the middle of the communal pond, where ten looms are installed. The ten best young weavers of the village show their skills while spectators, standing around the pond, give encouragement. Prizes are awarded to the most beautifully and rapidly woven cloth.
