There are 2 items that you can only see in Vietnam: áo dài and nón lá.

- Áo dài: Vietnamese dress.
- Nón lá: Vietnamese conical hat.

This theme is about nón lá.
Although I am a Vietnamese who spent two years 1975 & 1976 making hats for sale to keep my family's heads above water, I must admit that I didn't know completely the process of making hat, from the first step going to jungle to collect the nón leaves.

Please contribute. Thanks.
