GOOD MORNING VIETNAM !!
This year, MADAME MELON decided to change continent …It is in Vietnam that she puts down her suitcases.
After chaotic but fascinating Hanoi, direction SAPA, North is Vietnamese, small village surrounded with rice fields and with mountains, to meet hmongs minorities.
It is in it fabulous decoration that we spent a few weeks to be inspired by these women who shared us their culture and their textile knowledge.
Sang will have been our guide during the stay and showed us how worked these women even today.
From the brilliant costume of flower hmongs to the indigo color dress of the black hmongs, techniques are taught from the youngest age and their control sometimes requires years of practice.
Hmongs continues to cultivate the hemp for the weaving, as for indigo, stemming from the plant, it is the result of a chain of stages to obtain this color.
The batik, other pillar of the traditional preparation, consists in drawing patterns with beeswax on a fabric, before plunging it into a bath of indigo to dye it and reveals its patterns there,charged of symbols inspired by the nature and by the family history.
For the flower hmong fabrics, it is embroidered or assemblied of stripes that make their dresses so colored.
Our clutches and jewels are directly handmade with these fabrics, but we also created a range of jewels with semiprecious stones as the turquoise,coral and lapis lazuli directly inspired by their traditional jewels
You also bring you our favorites objects as hand-painted notebook, wicker baskets and brass bracelets, brought back in limited edition and only available on our eshop
