This beautiful vintage two piece outfit is made with traditional Hmong hill tribes textiles from the mountainous regions of Southern China and Northern Vietnam.
Within the amazing patchwork of textiles you'll find waxed batik, organic indigo dyed cotton and embroidered hand spun and hand woven hemp.
So much work and creativity has gone into creating these incredible pieces. From the harvesting of the hemp and extracting the indigo from the leaves of Indigofera plants, to the beautiful batik painting and dying and then the applique embroidery and hand sewing.
This is a vintage piece that has been adapted.
Rather than the traditional open wrap style the skirt has been joined together so it is lifted onto the body and tied at the waist.
A traditional Hmong embroidered belt strap sits in the middle hiding the seem panel.
The indigo textile base trim has been added- likely replacing a badly damaged trim on the vintage skirt.
Length 24" (60cm)
Waist - 17" (43cm) side to side when laid flat.
