The Blue Batik from the Blue Hmong people in Nan

Over the centuries, some HMONG PEOPLE migrated from China to the Hills of Northern Thailand. THE BLUE HMONG master the art of batik making and indigo dyeing. Their patterns and signs are rich with meaning and adorn clothes, soft furnishing and baby carriers. The WHITE HMONG master the art of embroidery: appliqué work, cross stitching and other types of needlework. For more information see : Hill Tribe Indigo Batik.
