Description

Shoulder bag is hand-woven from hemp fibers by a cooperative of Hmong women living in Vietnam’s northern hills. After harvesting the hemp plant, they peel the fiber from the stalk. They tie fibers together and spin them into threads that are then woven on a loom. The fabric is washed in a stream that runs through the village. It is then placed between a cylindrical stone and a flat stone; a women stands and rocks atop the stones to press the cloth.
