Long Dinh Sleeping Mat Knitting Village
Long Dinh Sleeping Mat Knitting Village is located in Long Dinh commune, Chau Thanh district, Tien Giang province which is famous throughout the Southwest Region for patterned sleeping mat knitting village. Thanks to good quality and beautiful design, Long Dinh sleeping mats are not only consumed in the domestic markets but also exported to Korea, Japan, the United States, etc.
In addition to the manual traditional production method, many households have been invested in modern machines and equipment for producing the sleeping mats with higher output to meet the diversified demands of the market.
The Sleeping Mat Knitting was introduced by the people from the famous trade village in Kim Son, Ninh Binh when moving to the South in 1954. Therefore, the sleeping mat knitting technique of this village is much different from the sleeping mat knitting techniques commonly found in many other places in the South. Long Dinh sleeping mats are normally thicker and the patterns are more beautiful and brighter.
