Visit Phu Lang pottery village

Phu Lang is a non-commercial pottery village situated at the base of a small chain of hills on the banks of the Cau River in northern Bac Ninh Province. It is part of an old pottery village triangle in Northern Vietnam which includes Bat Trang and the village of Tho Ha, which sadly due to industrialization does not produce ceramics any more.
This village has been making pottery since the 13th century, and around half the residents produces clay pots, decorative tiles, jars and the most lucrative item – burial caskets. Phu Lang pottery is unique and defined by the brown glazed colour and specific texture due to the raw clay found in the region.
