Vietnamese checkered scarf plays an important part in Vietnamese life and culture. Almost Vietnamese people who lived during the war period had these scarfs with them during the day. The scarfs were usually worn on the neck and used to wipe off the sweat when they were working hard in rice fields or fighting with enemies. Khan ran is also used to warm the body in the early morning or at night. Women made hats from the scarfs or hide their faces. The scarf looks simple like Vietnamese people in countrysides. It can be considered the symbol of Vietnamese farmers and soldiers. Khan ran is one of the most favorite souvenirs in Cu Chi tunnels. This souvenir is cheap so that you can by dozens to gift your friends and family. They would love to use these fashionable accessories.

3. Traditional clothes of Cu Chi people during the war

Cu Chi people in the past wore black Vietnamese silk ensemble (Ba ba) in daily life. Worn as a top and bottom set, Ba ba is most associated with rural Southern Vietnam. This ensemble consists of the torso and the long-sleeved, button-down and scooped neck shirt which covers the torso. The Ba ba of rich people in the country is glossy and has a light color. The black Ba ba shows us the brave and encouragement of Cu Chi people in the battle protecting national freedom.
