Description

The indigo batik placemat is a great conversation piece for your next dinner party. Traditionally, Hmong artisans grow and harvest the hemp that are then woven into lengths of fabric. Using a metal pen and beeswax, the Hmong draw patterns on the hemp.

The cloth is then dip dyed in indigo. By boiling the cloth the wax is removed leaving a striking blue and hemp coloured cloth.Traditionally these cloths are created to make clothing, although now they have the pleasure of gracing your table. As for the motifs, can you spot the mountain, seed and rice paddy motifs?
