Genuine Vintage Hmong embroidered hemp fabric.
The Hemp comes from the Hmong people in the far north west of Vietnam. It is grown by the tribe, dried, and the bark (the hemp fiber) is stripped from the stem and is 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 useable thread.
Decorated with beautiful hand embroidery all done with raw silk thread, hand stitched applique. This single piece would have taken several months of skilled work to produce.
Reclaimed from a vintage Hmong skirt. Age approximately 30-60 years. Condition is good, a few mouse nibbled inches along the bottom edge, to be expected of an old piece such as this.
