About the Hmong Tribe:
The Hmong people are believed to have been the original inhabitants of the Yellow River Valley (ancient China). When expansion took place from the northern part of China, the Hmong were pushed southwards to escape oppression. For centuries, they struggled to establish themselves as independent people. Eventually they settled in what is now known as Laos, Vietnam, an Myanmar, and more recently in the hillside of Thailand.
For ages, the Hmong supported themselves by cultivating Opium Poppy. Recently, they have turned from Opium growing, and are supporting their income from the sales of the beautiful embroidery that you see here.
Women traditionally make the clothing from cotton and other natural fibers. It is traditionally very vibrant, beautifully embroidered, intricate textile, with lots of animal and floral themes.
