The XQ Nha Trang Historical Village Aug 10, 2009
Traditional Vietnamese hand embroidery has existed since the 17th Century but not since the 1990's has it shifted from Chinese themes to those of Vietnam. Married artist and artisan Vo Van Quan and Hoang Le Xuan combined the traditional techniques of embroidered and painted arts to form the XQ Hand Embroidery company.

The XQ Nha Trang Historical Village is a Traditional Arts and Crafts Center conveniently located in the travel/tourist area right on the corner of Tran Phu and Biet Thu Streets. Modern shops display silk-embroidered seascapes, flowers, birds, portraits, still-lifes, and countryside scenes - all relating to proud national character.

Upstairs, craftswomen work in pairs, facing each other, over silk-draped tables lining two walls. They nimbly work needles of colorful silk thread with delicate hands and fingers to create meticulous hand crafted designs. Embroideries range from lavish home d├ęcor to simple scarves or greeting cards. Some of the creative designs, sandwiched between panes of framed glass, display two sides.

A courtyard tea garden is decorated with many of the works, nicely displayed around small shrines. Combined with colorful girls in traditional dress roaming the garden, the site truly captures the beauty of Vietnam.
