In 2006, Vietnamese designer Vo Viet Chung was awarded a UNESCO badge and certificate of merit for preserving Vietnam’s intangible cultural heritage by reviving and promoting ‘Lanh My A’ (traditional Vietnamese fabric). The designer has contributed to restoring and preserving rare traditional Lanh My A fabric material and introduced the unique material to the international fashion world. He is the first Vietnamese designer granted an award of this type.
