Hilltribe Heritage concept

All the products we sell are unique and hand-made.
We collect old and antique pieces of clothes in the rural area, looking for the most interesting patterns, and we transform them into different pieces of decoration or accessories. My sisters are doing the weaving in the village.

Usually the products we propose are made of hemp, traditional batik and embroideries, mostly from H’mong communities but also from other ethnic group as well. What choose carefully our fabrics, looking for is authenticity and history.

We would love to give you more details about our work, feel free to contact me in my shop or by email.

We have a wide range of products available :

Usually, the process for creating these pieces start in the garden :
