Tribal Hemp Apron

Tribal Hemp Apron - handsewn with Hmong batik Hemp and Linen. You'll love the gorgeous salmon-colored hemp fabric, made by the Hmong tribe of Northern Laos.

The Hmong are amazing people who use symbols and textiles as their written language. This hemp is grown, hand-woven and hand-batiked by the tribe. (Batik is the process of treating fabric with wax, applying dyes and then removing the wax to expose the fabric underneath.)
