The Hmong are an ethnic group from the mountainous regions of China, Vietnam, Laos, and Thailand. Hmong textile art (Paj ntau or Paj ntaub, meaning "flower cloth" in the Hmong language) is closely related to practices of other ethnic minorities in China, the embroidery consisting of bold geometric designs often realized in bright, contrasting colors. Different patterns and techniques of production are associated with geographical regions and cultural subdivisions within the global Hmong community. Traditionally, the embroidery was applied to skirts worn for courtship during New Year festivals, as well as baby-carriers, and men's collars.
