Hmong people have a distinctive style, and make their own clothes. Here are a few women working on their sewing projects.
These mothers’ colorful tops stood out from the others, which are mostly black with blue bands on the arms.
The women on the left are wearing the usual, everyday headgear. The young lady on the right is modeling the more elaborate, formal head dressing. She was able to go to Ho Chi Minh City for training and works at the Shelter for Elderly Women where Hands-On Saigon assists.
The children are expected to watch their younger siblings and also help out with other household chores. The girl on the right is washing rice for the next meal.
This is a typical Hmong house and family scene with more sewing taking place in the small hut in the middle. The two little girls on the right look adorable in their miniature traditional skirts.
