The northern province of Lao Cai is home to a large number of culturally rich and diverse ethnic minorities groups. Besides the famous beauty spots and raw natural beauty that attracts lots of visitors to the province, one of their most famous features is the brocade of traditional costumes.

The most intricate costumes of the H'mong, Dao, Pa Di and Tu Di groups are often made by hands and they take months to complete. The daily outfits are made from linen dyed in indigo. The outfits of Tay, Nung, and La Chi groups have fewer patterns and details.
