The history begin

Compared to the history of ceramic village formation 700 years ago. By the time of the French colonial period, Phan So was a high school graduate who had invested in building a more and more developed pottery factory.

After 1986, when the subsidy period was eliminated, some households took the initiative to produce privately and put products on the market for sale.
