The Hmong people are an ethnic group in East and Southeast Asia. They live mainly in southern China, Vietnam and Laos, but the most of Hmong embroidery now comes from a region in Thailand.
It is said the Hmong women hid the ancient Hmong paj ntaub script in the clothing of the Hmong people, and from this time forward, the scripts became motifs in the Hmong embroidery.
Banjaras are a semi-nomadic community in India. Since 12th century they are known as traders and transporters of goods with their caravans. Previously embroidered only for personal use in their traditional garments, over the past few decades Banjara women have revived their characteristic stitches, patterns and designs into embroidered consumer products, while providing them with much needed income.
