Jpeg 56K  9510K32 Flowery Hmong women at a small local market on the way down from the mountains around Sa Pa towards the town of Lao Cai, Lao Cai Province. Note their plain indigo dyed leg wrappings; mid-length skirts with machine applique, wax resist with some applique; relatively short front and back machine applique aprons; machine applique bag hanging at the waist; and blouses - one purchased velour and the other indigo dyed woven bast or purchased cotton fabric with applique and possibly some embroidery around the neck, front opening and sleeve bottoms.  On their heads both women are wearing imported machine woven woollen scarfs from China. The woman in the centre of the photograph is wearing a white metal necklace and some striking earrings. I bought a length of wax resist and a machine applique apron from these women.
