In many other rural areas, cottages with mud walls were the only option during times of economic hardship, but in Tho Ha, once known as one of three major northern ceramic centers, along with Bat Trang and Phu Lang, there was always a plentiful supply of reject tieu sanh lying around which local people could use to build their houses.
