Hmong people are one of the sub-groups of the bigger Miao ethnicity in China. They have in time mostly settled in Burma, Laos, Thailand and Vietnam. Their vibrant textile art is among the most colorful in all of South East Asia. Traditionally, women produced complex textiles as a sign of clan identity and cultural values. Different sub-groups thus create different patterns, colors and techniques. Indigo batik is among the most popular textile arts among the Blue or Green Hmong groups, but there are numerous other patterns, designed with traditionally geometric, abstract forms that the Hmong pass on as a shared visual language within, until relatively recently, oral culture.

given as a gift

I gave my daughter this necklace as a gift and she likes it a lot although the photograph seemed to suggest that the elements of it were larger than they are in real life. It is pretty and nicely made but more fine than I had expected.
