Folksight Turtle Silk Scarf


Traditional Vietnamese folktales come to life through the vibrant designs on Folksight’s silk scarves. Using Vietnamese silk as a canvas, the designers aim to illustrate the tales of their forefathers with detailed and eye-catching prints and colours. The turtle has a special place in Vietnamese culture and history. It symbolises longevity, strength and intelligence, and is also closely related to the independence of Vietnam in the 15th century as told in the story of Hanoi’s Hoàn Kiếm Lake (Returned Sword Lake).
