Photographer's Note

Hmong Girl posing in a rice paddy. Not in the usual traditional clothing we often see on TE but in more modern clothes.

Traditional Hmong clothes are made by the ladies of the house for the whole family. It is a year long process from the growing and harvesting if the hemp to the production of the final product with the intricate silk needle work.

Seeing increasing numbers of Hmong in modern dress maybe a sign of change and increasing prosperity for the Hmong in and around Sapa.
