The Lo Lo people in Sang Pa A village, Meo Vac district town still retain their traditional cultural values, which are expressed clearly in their daily life, festivals and costumes, especially those of the woman.

The Lo Lo people in Sang Pa A village, Meo Vac district town still retain their traditional cultural values, which are expressed clearly in their daily life, festivals and costumes, especially those of the woman. Lo Lo women's clothes are quite colorful with red being the predominant tone. The decoration is very unique with numerous embroidery details, fabric pieces put together and other accessories attached. Blouses are embroidered at the two arms, chest and back; Wide tube pants are patterned along the tube sides; A densely patterned fabric covers around the hip with two or three embroidered belts; and the head is wrapped with a scarf with countless small cotton balls. A Lo Lo woman since childhood is taught by her grandmother or mother how to sew and embroider, so that when married she could bring to husband’s home at least one set of dress. This helps maintain not only their sewing and embroidery skills, but also traditional features on their costumes. It takes 2-3 years for a woman to finish one such elaborate gown. All steps, from cutting, sewing, putting fabric pieces together to embroidery, attaching colored cirri, wool or glass beads etc. are handmade. Decorative motifs are creative; just a few small pieces of cloth in the form of triangles, the sun, peach or cardamom flowers put together allow one to create new, diverse and even more unique shapes. In 2011, the Craft Link NGO cooperated with Ha Giang Women's Union to implement the project "Conservation of traditional culture and increase of income for Lo Lo people" in Meo Vac to raise awareness of cultural value, improve embroidery, sewing skills, financial management and marketing know-how etc. On that basis, the Lo Lo Textile Cooperative was established in 2016, providing such products as handbag, pillow, tablecloth, towel, hat etc., earning a turnover of c.100 million VND a year and an income of c.2 million VND/person/month
