Hmong embroideries and textiles are called pa ndau or ‘flower cloth’ because of the bright, contrasting colours. This hat is looking a bit faded – it must have been well loved! To see some more of these fabulous hats check out Hmong Arts, Books & Crafts – a store dedicated to preserving Hmong culture.

I'm a dye hard fan of textile history and come from a family of crafters. I'm interested in learning more about embroidery by trying out age old techniques with a contemporary twist. I hope you enjoy looking through my projects and that they inspire you to give stitching a try!
