SaPa Textiles

Here are some of the textiles I purchased on a recent trip to Sapa a small mountainous township  in Vietnam.
The background piece is batik on handwoven hemp then dyed in indigo. The others are either old pieces or newer stitched by women from the Black Hmong or Dao tribes who live in or near SaPa in smaller villages. All of it an enormous amount of work. All soft and wonderful to touch and hold.
