the traditional weaving on hemp requires many long and complex processing steps. It initially looks like chaff. It is then defibrated, softened, washed many times, then woven into a very strong and durable fabric. All these steps are carried out by hand in the highlands of Laos.
the batik is a dyeing technique, typical of the ethnic group Hmong . The designs are waxed onto the fabric. It is then dipped several times in the dye, then boiled to remove the wax. Then the white patterns appear, preserved from the wax dye.
