Hemp Fabric

This fabric has bee reclaimed from vintage skirts from the Hmong Hill Tribe people. The designs are all hand drawn with a batik wax pen and then dyed with natural indigo. The fabric may have been dyed many times to get the desired depth of colour.

The hemp fabric was hand woven on a back strap loom which means that it's width is restricted to about 30 cm wide. The length of the hemp batik fabric rolls that we stock is typically 5 meters which when pleated is the length needed to go around a skirt.
