Laos Hmong Embroideries
We are Hmong people from Laos living at the Kajsiab Shelter. In our Women's Workoplace we make beautiful embroidered art work. We are very proud of our skills that we have learned from our mothers and grandmothers.
To make one piece of embroidery takes many days and many hours of patiently sitting together, sew and talk about life, while ate the same time watching our children and feed our babies.
When you buy our embroideries you help us and Project Kajsiab Laos and you also help to save our traditional skills for future generations.
All our symbols in our embroidery work have meaning.
Below some examples of the symbols and the meaning.
Enjoy!. Some of the embroidery on this page is for sale, click on the photo to go to the shop page
