Description

It’s hands down one of the most striking pieces of textiles you’ll ever see! Made by Hmong artisans using traditional resist wax dye, indigo and hemp, this textile is stunning and eco-friendly! Traditionally, these strips of indigo batik hemp were used for clothing and home items.

We’ve reimagined them as table runners, or you could also use them on a chair or sofa, or as a wall hanging. The zigzag, line and dash motifs represent mountains, rice fields and seeds, elements of the Hmong village landscape.

If you are in Luang Prabang, stop by the Living Crafts Centre and learn this technique from our resident Hmong master artisan!
