What is Hmong?
Hmong Textile Art consists of traditional and modern textile arts and crafts produced by the Hmong people. Traditional Hmong textile examples include hand-spun hemp cloth production, basket weaving, batik dyeing, and a unique form of embroidery known as flower cloth or Paj Ntaub in the Hmong language RPA.
Flower Cloth refers to the use of these fabrics to wrap up babies - disguising them as flowers and protecting them from evil spirits.
