HA NOI (VNS) — The Viet Nam Handicraft Exporters Association (Vietcraft) has launched a Sustainable Product Design Competition to encourage designers, artisans, companies and research institutes to develop designs that encourage the sustainability and diversity of the country's handicrafts.

Participants can submit proposals in six product categories: home decoration and handicrafts, indoor and outdoor furniture, home textiles and embroidery, gifts and ethnic items, personal accessories and toys.

The products of the winners will be promoted on national and international media, and at fairs both home and abroad. The deadline for proposals is January 31, 2015.

Le Ba Ngoc, deputy chairman of Vietcraft, said handicraft companies in Viet Nam had largely failed to recognise the importance of design, sustainable products and the necessity for innovation. — VNS
