Jpeg 48K 9510K29  Brightly dressed Flowery Hmong woman walking down the street in Sa Pa, Lao Cai Province.  She is a visitor to Sa Pa, in the town on a training programme, and lives near the Chinese border. The Flowery Hmong near to the border tend to wear more bought trimmings on their clothing which they obtain from China.  Note her embroidered and applique leg wrappings and her long apron.  She only very narrow bands of wax resist on her skirt which features applied strips of fabric and embroidery.
