The reason for hand painted bamboo beaded curatin producer reducing their scale

For a long time, a lot of households in the outlying district of Cu Chi in Ho Chi Minh City have earned a living by making bamboo curtains. But in recent years, the job has turned out to be more difficult to maintain. There are two main reasons lead to this situation:

The workforce is decrease

The buyers usually send the order in certain time, that lead to the fact that too many orders come at the same time, and sometimes, there is no order. Therefore, income of worker is not stable, many people have been found another industry that is more stable such as textile, garment, technology….

The material is not available

In the past, bamboo could be found right here in the area of Cu Chi or bought from the neighboring province of Tay Ninh at VND4,000-5000 per kilo. Now, they have to buy bamboo in some Mekong Delta provinces at a higher price of VND7,000 a kilo.

Material prices are increasingly high but the selling prices of their products have remained almost unchanged, forcing many households to leave the job. Meanwhile, other households that still cling to the craft can earn a mere VND5,000-7,000 for each bamboo curtain sold.
