Hanoi village weaves bamboo for the world

A man weaves rattan pedestals for ceramic jars. The business started with several men making home necessities and has grown to involve roughly 400 families. The village now produces more decorative products (e.g. lampshades, curtains and paintings) some of which are exported to nearly 50 countries.
