The Tuyen Quang provincial Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism in coordination with Na Hang district’s authorities hosted a ceremony on October 12 to receive a certificate honouring the decoration art in traditional costumes of local Red Dao ethnic groups as a national intangible heritage.
A set of traditional costumes of Red Dao women include a blouse, trousers, belt, and headwear. The most important part of the outfit is the long-sleeve blouse, which covers over their trousers and is commonly in black or indigo colours.

The acknowledgement for the heritage is an event of significance as it contributes to the preservation and promotion of traditional value while popularising cultural features of ethnic minority groups in Tuyen Quang province.
Tuyen Quang province is now home to around 90,600 Dao ethnic people. Red Dao people often live in Son Phu, Sinh long and Nang Kha communes (Na Hang district) and Tho Binh commune (Lam Binh district).
