AWARD WINNER: 02/24/2024 - 500px Global Photography Awards 2023 Top-30 Thu Sy Fish Basket Making: A few villages in northern Vietnam are famous for maintaining its traditional craft of manually producing bamboo underwater traps over the past more or less 200 years.The villages are collectively named Thu Sy because they all sit in the Thu Sy Commune in Hung Yen Province, about 54 kilometers to the southeast of capital Hanoi.In the rural tranquility occasionally disturbed by rooster crows and canine barks, craftspeople sit at their homes weaving traps from strips of bamboo and flexible wood of a palm species called calamus.The items, resembling an elongated spheroid, can be called fish traps for short but they can actually catch other aquatic creatures such as crabs and eels as the objects have two openings of different sizes that prevent the victims from escaping.
