Handmade individually by Japanese-trained artisans in a small Hmong community in Sapa, northern Vietnam.
Using real indigo and centuries-old techniques, these are stunning displays of cross cultural transfer. The Hmong, whose own traditions with batik and indigo dyeing, are natural shibori artisans, as these pieces clearly show.
Various sizes and shades of blue, there are no two alike.
