Diềm Village is located in the Việt Nam - Laos border area. This village is home to 153 households of the Thái and Đan Lai ethnic groups.

Taking advantage of natural materials from the forest, the people of this village have created many unique crafts forsale.However, there was a time when many people in the village had to change jobs to make a living because there were no customers.

It was not until 2016 that the bamboo and rattan cooperative of the village was established, marking the recovery and strong development of the traditional craft here.

The cooperative has created many new handmade products, including fruit plates, handbags, and storage trays.
