In order to ensure its accessibility, the approach was transformed into a tangible toolkit which consists of three set of tools that act as a supporting material to mediate a session. A set of trend styles forecasted in 2013 are also included to help user with no design background or experience to kick-start their NPD project. This toolkit aims to be a catalyst for Vietnamese producers to innovate based on their heritage product. It also act as a platform to collaborate between designers and non-designers through step by step process that enable them to co-create using the same method. This potentially will increase design awareness and creative capabilities among local producers through experience and share knowledge with professional designers during the session. ‘Heritage Product for Future Living’ allow people to experience the process of developing new ideas from heritage product.
