Genuine vintage Hmong hand woven hemp. Dark brown colour. Fairly stiff, coarse due to the dark natural dye, 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 brown dye is obtained from the root of a locally grown plant, all organic and long lasting.
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.
