About the trip
History & Culture Local Wisdom Arts and Craft
Batik is a resist dye technique created by wax drawn motifs. Traditionally, Hmong people use hemp as a base fabric. The batik design is used for traditional costumes and household items such as blankets. Since the Hmong do not have written language, they create patterns on their costume with symbolic meanings, reflecting their tradition, family, spiritual values and natural surroundings.
