Genuine vintage Hmong hand woven hemp. Light saddle brown colour. Soft, fine woven vintage hemp.

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 light brown dye is obtained from the root of a locally grown plant, and a sample can be seen pictured. The fresh cut hemp can be seen in the last set of images.

We buy this fabric directly from a number of elderly Hmong women, in a small village, in Northern Vietnam. This particular hemp is vintage reclaimed, meaning it is very soft. Recently dyed.

We ship with the very efficient Vietnam Post Office, all orders are trackable, all shipping costs are exactly what VNpost charge us, no profit made on shipping, all shipping overcharges refunded.

I have enjoyed making a skirt out of the light brown hemp fabric. I was able to make a panel skirt-long and it is very warm and comfortable. Love the handwoven feel of the fabric!

The fabric is so beautiful to the touch I can't wait to use it. The color is a good bit darker then I had hoped but I will make it work. The color is more like burnt sienna/sepia tone.
