To make a perfect pot requires meticulous stages, each pot is priced only VND1,000-VND5,000/unit. However, Tru Son people have preserved this traditional job for many generations.

Products of Tru Son villages are not sophisticated like those of Bat Trang or Chu Dau pottery villages.

So far, through many generations, despite many ups and downs, Tru Son people have still preserved the traditional job.
