Elga Vintage Hmong Pleated Skirt- Indigo Hemp Batik

Elga Vintage Hmong Pleated Skirt- Indigo Hemp Batik


I just love how cute this vintage skirt is! It's such a unique piece from the Hmong hill tribe. 


The skirt is made with organic hand spun and hand woven hemp which has a beautiful raw but soft texture. The hemp has been dyed with indigo and the patterns and motives are then appliquéd onto the hemp.


The base of the skirt is embellished with beautiful hand embroidered cotton motives. 


So much work and creativity has gone into creating this incredible piece, 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 embroidery and hand sewing. It truly is a masterpiece!  


THIS PIECE IS VINTAGE not a newly made reproduction so please expect some imperfections.  These imperfections are the heart, soul and history of these old and rare textiles. They are strikingly beautiful just as they are!
