Full description
Partake in a workshop where you learn how to make the iconic Vietnamese hat, locally called Non La. Your host, one of the thousands of women that make a living selling Non La to travelers, will guide you as you create your own Vietnamese hat that you can take home.

Recognizable at one glance, the conical-shaped hat has been in use for centuries, from farmers to laborers to ordinary men and women who use it for the utilitarian purpose it serves - protection from either rain or shine.

In this workshop, you will learn how to create your very own iconic and fashionable souvenir as well as the history of the hat. See how it is made from simple materials such as palm leaves, the bark of the Moc tree, and bamboo. You will be surprised at how durable and sturdy it is.
