These panels are created with extremely laborious traditional techniques and artisan skills that are almost forgotten arts. Firstly the organic hemp fabric is created from the harvested hemp plant. Through a serious of steps the fibers are gathered then hand spun and hand woven. The indigo is extracted from the leaves of Indigofera plants to make the indigo powder. The hemp is dipped into the organic indigo which is mixed with very cold water which helps the indigo colour fix deeply into the hemp fibers. This is repeated multiple times to achieve the desired shade of blue. Traditionally the elder woman from the Hmong ethnic group from the mountains of Northern Vietnam hand embroidered these beautiful patterns with hand spun silk.

Eventually after all these steps and several weeks of preparation these amazing works of art are created and traditionally used for clothing. Size - L3.2mts x W0.20mts / L3.5 yards. Please note the embroidery pattern is not consistent along the length of the roll. These imperfections are the heart, soul and history of these old and rare textiles. They are strikingly beautiful just as they are!
Spot clean or gently hand wash with very cold water only. The indigo colour may bleed.
