Front, side, and back view of Black Hmong headpiece

This post piggybacks on my last post, which featured the Black Hmong headpiece. This picture shows the headpiece from the front, side, and back. The shirt is also a traditional Black Hmong shirt, although the applique in the front opening is not turned inside out. The back of the photo also shows the laug of the shirt, which sits at the nape of the neck. Unlike some Hmong shirts, the laug on Black Hmong shirts are flipped so that the beautiful applique work is facing down and all you see is the stitch work from the applique on the reverse side.

Black Hmong clothes hold a special place in my heart, so you will be seeing a lot of it!

  1. Is there a mean to the designs of the shirt to be on either the right or on the left side? I’f heard from a friend that for men shirt’s the design is on the left side and for women it is on the left side. Just wanted to know.
