In many places in Vietnam, women wearing áo dài can be seen sitting in front of embroidery frames, embroidering lifelike portraits, landscapes, and scenery one stitch at a time. The subject of the decoration in the image is the apricot blossom, which is commonly seen in Vietnam. Vietnam’s embroidery style differs from that of China, and was deeply influenced by the French colonial era. In particular, the color changes are exquisite. From afar, the embroidery resembles an oil painting, and only a close-up look reveals that it was made with needle and thread. The range of Vietnam’s hand-embroidered products is very extensive, and common products include coasters, handkerchiefs, purses, clothes, and embroidered decorations. They are an important export commodity and popular tourist souvenir.
