After the Vietnam War, my parents—like many Vietnamese couples at the time—received government subsidies when they got married. Amongst other things in the family starter kit is this blanket that I have carried with me ever since we moved to the United States. The design is made up of traditional prints like a peacock, long-tailed bird, and flower cluster on top of a red background.
