Hmong Cotton Stitched Sleeve Top

Hmong Cotton Stitched Sleeve Top

Regular price $38

This long sleeve vest-like top is woven by the Hmong people of Northern Vietnam. Raw cotton is loomed by hand to create the base of the shirt. The cloth is then dipped in indigo dye repeatedly to give the dark blue/black color. Then in their free time, Hmong women spend hours creating the intricate needlework design that adorns the shirt. Finally, the pieces are put together in to a beautiful, wearable piece of art.
