The Inspiring Story of Nâu and her Macramé Creations

Nâu, an interior designer from Hue, discovered a love for macramé during lockdown. Infusing her creations with Vietnamese heritage, her unique macramé art gained recognition worldwide, proving the power of adaptability and passion.

Nâu, a young interior designer, was born and raised in the vibrant city of Hue, Vietnam. From a very young age, she displayed a unique passion for creativity and an innate sense of aesthetics. Guided by an unwavering determination, Nâu pursued her dreams relentlessly, striving to make a mark in the interior design industry.

Each piece she created became a symbol of her deep connection with her roots and a testament to her creativity and craftsmanship.

However, the world had something unexpected in store for Nâu. The outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020 brought the industry to a standstill. Projects were put on hold, and Nâu found herself facing an uncertain future. Amidst the chaos and uncertainty, she knew she had to adapt and find a way to continue creating and sharing her passion.

During the lockdown, Nâu discovered a newfound fascination with macramé, an ancient form of textile art involving intricate knotting techniques. She began exploring this medium and experimenting with different materials and colors, infusing her creations with her love for her Vietnamese heritage. That is when the adorable Toong macramé was born.

Drawing inspiration from the vibrant and diverse culture of Hue, Nâu started incorporating traditional Vietnamese patterns, motifs, and colors into her macramé designs. Each piece she created became a symbol of her deep connection with her roots and a testament to her creativity and craftsmanship.

 

As her macramé creations gained attention, her unique blend of colors and cultural elements quickly became a hit among art enthusiasts and those seeking a touch of elegance combined with a glimpse of Vietnamese culture. Through her intricate designs, she effortlessly captured the essence of her homeland and the vibrant spirit of her heritage.

Today, her macramé art has gained recognition both locally and internationally. Her pieces have been spread by National media, local newspapers, and interior communities. Nau’s dedication and passion have proven that adaptability and a willingness to explore new horizons can lead to unexpected success.

Hanoi countryside tales by traditional crafts

Today, drive an hour along the Red River to Ha Noi’s neighboring countryside through immense rice fields and fruit farms. Visit the village that birthed Vietnamese incense upon arrival. This village’s incense, made from over 30 herbs with skills passed down from generation to generation, is known for its pure, light scent. A guided stroll through the hamlet with older residents will take you to various family-run workshops to see the entire incense-making process and hear about the glory days of this traditional craft. Help the host make incense.

Take another short drive to a rural community behind endless rice fields and duck farms. The locals’ 200-year-old fish-pot crafting heritage includes bamboo weaving.
