History of Dong Ho

Dong Ho folk paintings originate from Dong Ho village in Bac Ninh province, Vietnam. Known for their rustic charm and vibrant simplicity, these paintings use natural colors from materials such as leaves, flowers, and seashells. The intricate woodblock printing technique gives each piece a unique texture and depth. Themes often depict rural life, traditional legends, and aspirations for prosperity and happiness, making them a treasured part of Vietnamese culture.


Dong Ho paintings are a significant part of Vietnam’s cultural heritage and are on the verge of becoming a lost art. This project is a heartfelt effort to revive and preserve this ancient art form, ensuring its legacy lives on for future generations. By celebrating Dong Ho art, we aim to highlight its status as a world cultural heritage, and through our collection, breathe new life into a centuries-old tradition.


The Inspiration Behind the Collection

By collaborating with artists from diverse cultures and countries, Gossby aims to elevate the values of cultural heritage and artistry, blending them into unique and meaningful gifts. The Dong Ho Collection is a testament to this mission, showcasing the intricate and meaningful art of Dong Ho paintings.

By incorporating Dong Ho art into modern products, Gossby bridges the gap between tradition and contemporary design, making these cultural treasures accessible to a broader audience.

Connection Between Gossby, Dong Ho, and Mother’s/Father’s Day

The Dong Ho Collection is particularly meaningful for Mother’s Day and Father’s Day. The collection’s focus on family values and ancestral respect aligns perfectly with these celebrations. Dong Ho paintings often depict scenes of familial harmony and love, making them ideal for gifts that express gratitude and appreciation towards parents. This collection not only honors Vietnamese culture but also offers a heartfelt way to celebrate the special bond between parents and children.

Unique Features of Dong Ho Art in Products

Colors: Dong Ho paintings are characterized by natural colors sourced from various materials. The vibrant palette includes shades like the green of leaves, the red of hibiscus flowers, and the yellow of marigold pollen. These natural colors bring a warm and lively feel to the artwork.



Shapes and Composition
: The artwork features simple, yet meaningful compositions with clear, distinct shapes and harmonious color arrangements. The designs often use flat areas of color, which contrast with the intricate details of the woodblock prints, creating a unique visual appeal.
