HANDSPUN, VIETNAM

While we were in Vietnam we spent three days trekking around the old French hill station, Sapa. The Hmong minority, who live in the area, hand-make the most beautiful and unique clothes, jewelry and accessories. When I met the two Hmong women pictured here, I almost immediately noticed their hands which were stained with dye and entwined in hemp, which they seemed to thread and spin subconsciously.

What's so amazing, is that you can so clearly see the influence of the Hmong  in the current hand-spun trend.
