Long Dinh village has a history of 60 years in mat weaving craft that originated from migrants in Kim Son village, a well-known mat weaving village in the northern province of Ninh Binh. Over the years, Long Dinh village became a famous hub of mat weaving craft itself in the Mekong Delta province of Tien Giang, with 97 households and 417 workers practicing the craft. The mat’s high quality makes them popular domestically, and they are also exported to markets worldwide including the Republic of Korea, Japan and the US. VNA Photo: Nam Thái
