STORY

Every year a Mien woman will make her own clothes covered in beautiful hand stitched embroidery that tells stories of the Mien culture and connects women to the land, the mountains, the community and their story as Mien people.

A woman will spend months and months on each panel of embroidery that makes up the jackets. Every panel of embroidery is intertwined with symbols and meaning that represent the stories of their ancient culture, where they came from and where and how they live now.
