Hmong Full Dress
One of a kind/Vintage Hmong dress

A desire for INDEPENDENCE dominates the lives of the Hmong. They seek economic independence through their industriousness, and liberty to follow their own life style by means of armed force when threatened. In Thailand this desire for independence has led a few Hmomg to joy Communist factions promising them freedom, while in Laos the Hmong were bitter anti-Communist fighters seeing in Communism a distinct threat to their independence. Most of the Hmong living in Thailand in the early 1980s, however, have found that real economic, social and religious freedom is only to be found within a stable political environment.

A tiny needle, strand, lengths of vari-coloured cloth, and the genius of a Hmong woman – these are the ingredients of some of the most exquisite needlework to be found anywhere. Throughout their long history, Hmong woman have devoted their artistic skill and industry to the development of and amazing variety of teniques using needle and thread. They adorn the clothing of every member of the family, from the smallest baby to the oldest grandparents. Even the corpses are ricly endowed with embroideries to take to the next world.

Nowadays much of the cloth used is purchased from itinerant traders or in the marketplace, but traditionally it all had to be produced within the Hmong household. Even today many woman prefer to weave their own homespun hemp or cotton cloth for much of the clothing worn by the family, using looms that combine back-strap and foot-treadle techniques. The weaver sits on a bench with one end of the loom attachedto a belt. She controls the tension with her back, while shifting the warp threads with foot treadles.
