The Vietnamese Embassy in Bangladesh brought to the event handcrafts bearing the characteristics of Vietnamese culture such as brocade bags, silk scarves, hand-embroidered pictures, Non la (conical hats), and long dresses for men and women.

Especially, the show of Ao dai has surprised and delighted the audience because of the similarity between the traditional costumes of Vietnam and Bangladesh. 

Md. Manzur Qader, advisor of the Bangladesh Heritage Foundation and member of the festival’s organising board said the performance of Vietnam’s traditional costume at the event is very impressive and has a special appeal to Bangladeshi visitors. 

He hoped that there would be more opportunities for people of both countries to be decked out in each other's traditional costumes. 

Addressing the festival, Vietnamese Ambassador Tran Van Khoa highlighted similarities in culture between the two nations, saying that the culture exchange event like this will contribute to reinforcing and strengthening the friendship and mutual understanding between the countries’ people. 


The 3rd international craft festival also attracted exhibitors from India, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Bhutan, and Brazil. It served as a bridge promoting connection and friendship among countries.
