Kim Hoang folk print

The pig

Drawn on Dieu paper


The Kim Hoang folk print, which originated from Kim Hoang village, Hoai Duc District, Hanoi, used to be one of the ordinary Vietnamese people’s favourite genres during Tet holiday. It is also called “the red print” because of the distinctive colour of the paper.

On the red background is a fat black pig with white decorative lines, giving a sense of repleteness and also conveying the wish of growth and prosperity in the new year.
