In the past, stone carving was only practised in a few households in Ninh Van commune, Hoa Lu district in the northern province of Ninh Binh, and they mainly produced items made of blue stone which were sold only in the region. 

Gradually over time many people there have benefited from this industry and the noise of craftsmen’s hammers and machinery can now be heard all around the commune. 

Almost all the people and households produce stone carvings ranging from simple to sophisticated designs, most of which have become popular in many areas of the country.
