The Hemp is grown on the land, in and around Sapa, Northern Vietnam, where the H'mong people live. Once harvested, the hemp is attached thread by thread, by hand, and then spun on a traditional wheel, ready to be strung on a wooden loom, where it is hand-woven.
Traditional bees wax is used as a dye resist, with motifs and patterns personal to the maker/tribe. The hemp is then dyed in an indigo bath, for 20 minutes at a time, over the course of 2 days, to achieve a rich deep colour. The hemp is boiled to remove the bees wax, and expose the beautiful hemp cover.
This textile has a remarkable geometric pattern of applique red, green and pink, tropical design, very unique and modern.
The lining in a silky navy blue fabric (bought new) paired with a brass zipper and pom-pom detail.
Perfect present for any woman :)
Wonderful as a clutch bag or perfect as a makeup bag
