Genuine vintage Hmong hand woven hemp. Soft, fine woven hemp. In it's un-dyed milky colour.
The hemp is grown by the Hmong tribeswomen, dried, and the hemp fiber stripped from the stem and pounded, boiled, spun and coated with wax before it can be strung on an old wooden loom and woven into the finished product. All year around the tribeswomen can be seen with hemp fibers wound around their hands, using what spare time they have to connect the separate fibers to make one use-able thread.
We buy this fabric directly from a number of elderly Hmong women, in a small village, in Northern Vietnam. Vintage hemp with the natural off white colour.
