The Hanoi Museum has recently held an exhibition “Fabric Scraps”, displaying 40 traditional folk paintings embracing diverse Vietnamese cultural identities. The artworks made of silk fabric scraps feature Vietnamese people and landscapes.
Those paintings are made from fabric scraps by disabled and autistic people from the Vun Art Cooperative in Van Phuc, Hanoi.
The exhibition "Fabric Scraps” jointly held by the Hanoi Museum and Vun Art Cooperative aims to spread messages of the disabled's strong will to overcome life’s difficulties.
Le Viet Cuong (right), Director of Vun Art Cooperative, said this is the first large-scale exhibition of artworks by the disabled people of Vun Art. He expressed his hope that visitors not only support the disabled people but also appreciate their creativity.
Fabric scraps, which are seemingly useless, are put together to create traditional folk paintings devoted to Vietnamese cultural identities.

Vun Art cooperative was founded by Le Viet Cuong in 2017 in Van Phuc silk village, Hanoi, aiming to preserve the cultural values and create jobs for people with disabilities. Vun Art focuses on making items from scraps to preserve the traditional silk weaving craft of Van Phuc village and protect the environment.
