In the coastal district of Thanh Hoa province, Nga Son has been known for its beautiful sedge mats for centuries. Most Vietnamese know well the idiom, “Nga Son mats, Bat Trang ceramics” which signifies the popularity of these two locations.


There are many provinces planting sedge for mat making and various kinds of handicraft, but sedge in Nga Son is always considered best quality because of its soil condition. The sedge is not only long but also naturally white and free from black spots caused by stem borers.


Thousands of farmers engage in various stages of mat making, from spining, dyeing and drying, to weaving. Many co-operatives and enterprises like Viet Trang, Nga Son were established with hundreds of workers busily weaving beautiful mats in large workshops. In recent years, Nga Son mats have also had competition from artificial plastic mats flooding the markets, but these can never take the place of authentic sedge mats. Cool in summer and warm in winter, Nga Son mats ventilate well and smell of nature, linking their users to an age-old tradition and heritage.
