 Vietnam incense village
HANOI: In Vietnam’s “incense village”, everybody are hard at work dying, drying and whittling down bamboo bark to make the fragrant sticks ahead of the busy lunar new year holiday.
It is the most frantic time of year for workers in the cottage industry in Quang Phu Cau village on the outskirts of Hanoi, where families have been making incense for more than a century – a great source of pride for many.

“It is a traditional and spiritual job making these sticks,” someone said with us that, this time sitting amid bundles of bright pink incense sticks drying under the afternoon sun.

The same this village is among several dotted across Vietnam making the sticks, the scent of each batch tailored to the tastes of regions they will be sold in.

familys in village started making the sticks more than 100 years ago and everybody still pitches in along with teenage daughter who helps out after school.
Most households in the alleys of Quang Phu Cau are involved in the ancient trade.

Some hack bamboo planks down to be fed into a whittling machine; others dip the thin strips into buckets of pink dye, leaving hundreds of brightly coloured bushels fanned out like bouquets on the streets to air out.

Later, women donning cloth face masks coat the dried sticks with aromatic incense paste before redrying them and shipping them off for packaging.

The work offers more than just pride for many in Quang Phu Cau: like this everyone, many earn good money making incense compared to factory work nearby.

“This job is hard work, but I am earning enough to raise two of my children to become doctors,” said us when she is working.

That said, she’s happy her two other kids have decided to work with her.

"In addition to selling incense in the country, the village of Quảng Phú Cầu also provides large quantities of products for export, in addition to individual businesses that have large factories for export, one of them is: GMEX factory ."
