Exists in Vietnam since the 13th century, Dó paper is manufactured through a complex process, consisting of up to 100 steps. It’s knowned for being very durable and resilient, with a slightly textured surface. Although holding a lot of cultural and historical values, the practice of making Dó paper is at risk of disappearing as modern society continues to lose touch with its once traditionas.
Zó hopes to revive the practice by applying this timeless craft in contemporary uses. We are promoting creativity through artistic yet practical products made from Dó paper, as well as holding events and workshops that will familiarize younger generations with the tradition.
