Au Lac Wood Art was established in 2004 by two young men, Mr. Tran Thu who had experience more than 15 years in wood fine arts and Mr. Nguyen Viet Linh who was a literature bachelor but became a businessman.

Au Lac Wood Art is combination between modern carvings and traditional handicraft carvings of Vietnamese. Beside the sophistication and the meticulosity of wood carvings that ancestors had summarized from thousands of year ago, art elements were also pushed up to the pinnacle. That makes wood art products become the pinnacle of art instead of only being a simple art product.


Nguyen Viet Linh's idea of wood art products development becoming a kind of new art and introduced on market widely has been expressed by Tran Thu his close friend. He has skilfully carved many portraits containing national soul . The art products such as Suy Ngam, Nguyen Cau, Trinh Cong Son portrait, Bui Giang portrait became a premise for Au Lac Art to step up a new level –  level of the portrayed carving art. Futhermore, Tran Thu has forgot himself in working date and night and researching to always renew his products. He has produced a “my village story” with squash flowers, gourd flowers and water hyacinth  with vague home land river nostalgia.


At the starting time, Au Lac wood art products had been asserted their position by Vietnam valuable awards such as Gold Medals for The cream of National Culture 2004, Tour Product Design Award 2005, Form creations Award 2005….Moreover, Au Lac wood showroom in Hoi An has attracted many foreign tourists to visit with amazement and admiration.
