Everybody loves Hmong Batik, right? Is it the natural indigo blue or the intricate Hmong batik patterns that charms everyone? We think it’s probably a little of both.
As it’s getting harder and harder to source these beautiful textiles, we decided to upcycle the pieces we had left from other projects and create these beautiful eco-friendly cushions.
The Hmong use a wax-resist dyeing with indigo technique, primarily on hemp fabric, to create these nature inspired motifs that symbolise fields, rice, seeds and mountains. This technique is still practiced in Laos, although the skill is being replaced by printed fabric.
We work closely with Hmong artisans, both in Luang Prabang and surrounding villages, to make these cushion covers.
