The Art Of Hmong Batik

Batik is a very popular fabric decoration technique of many ethnic groups. Basically, it is a technique of using molten beeswax, painting on a fabric surface, covering the location where the original color of the fabric is to be retained. The fabric will be dyed with cool dyes and finally boiled in boiling water. Beeswax melted in boiling water will reveal the covered pattern.

In Vietnam, Mong women are very skillful in decorating with beeswax. Different batik patterns can be seen on their skirts, dresses, and baby carriers. Each hand made product carries the pride and love of the artisans.

In coming exhibition on November 17th, 2018, CRAFT LINK is pleased to present Hmong artisans from Pa Co commune, Mai Chau district, Hoa Binh province and Che Cu Nha commune, Mu Cang Chai district, Yen Bai province. Let's join our exhibition to admire this unique Batik Art.
