In Vietnam, embroidery is a traditional craft with a development history for many years. The history of this traditional craft sticks to the spiritual history of Vietnamese women in the past. Dating back to the 1st century, besides the “Requiting country’s debt and home’s revenge” embroidered flag in Two Trưng Sisters’ revolutionary, Vietnamese women decorate and refurbish their house by embroidered works, especially desire to show feelings and beautify themselves.
This museum has near 400 artworks, objects, photos, documents featuring embroidered pictures, double-sided embroidered pictures, thread sculptures and other artefacts relating to embroidery. All of them are represented through three major themes: embroidery body, embroidery face, embroidery voice.

About The Host: Heygo started as a way for co-founders John and Liam to keep exploring new places. As avid travellers themselves, they wanted to help people stay connected with the world and for those in the travel industry to continue doing what they love.They believe that travel is an incredibly important way to break down cultural barriers and understand the world through other people’s eyes. They also recognize it is often a privilege reserved for the few. For many people, hopping on a plane half-way around the world is out of reach and comes with serious consequences for our planet’s health.John and Liam realised that there needed to be a way to embrace the culture of other countries in an environmentally conscious way; to still travel when family obligations makes it difficult to get away; and to keep exploring even when an injury or disability means travelling is harder.So that’s why they created Heygo - a travel specific live-streaming platform. One that would allow local guides to share the places they know best with the hope that it can bring people around the world closer together.
