Genuine vintage Hmong hand woven hemp. Rich indigo colour. Beautiful batik hand printing.

The hemp is grown by the Hmong tribeswomen, dried, and the hemp fiber stripped from the stem and pounded, boiled, spun and coated with wax before it can be strung on an old wooden loom and woven into the finished product. All year around the tribeswomen can be seen with hemp fibers wound around their hands, using what spare time they have to connect the separate fibers to make one use-able thread.

The Indigo dye is obtained from a plant also grown by the tribe on the edge of their steep rice terraced mountainsides. The fresh cut hemp and the dye can bee seen in the last set of images.

The batik pattern has been produced with a small hand stamp and beeswax.
