While festive clothing and baby carriers remain a common feature of daily life in Hmong culture, the creation of decorative quilts has declined due to mass-produced blankets. These bedcovers were typically a part of a dowry, and were made of scraps from old clothing and fabric. They were used to decorate wedding beds and also welcome the birth of a child.

This piece is decorated with embroidered or appliqué geometric and organic shapes.  The appliqué fabrics are shades of indigo, which is common in this region, and neutral tones. The ground is a natural colored cotton and is pieced together in squares, with the appliqué creating smaller shapes within that.

Keep in mind ...

Our vintage and antique pieces have traveled throughout the world and survived decades - maybe even centuries - of use. Do not expect them to be in perfect or *new* condition. Signs of their past makers and owners may be noticeable such as small holes, loose threads, & stains. In our opinion, this adds to their charm!
