Manual hemp weaving
This cup holder is used organic hemp with organic plant dye. Weaving hemp fabric is a labour-intensive process. The cultivation period occurs between April and October. Once the plants have been cut, the stems are laid along the ground for several weeks so the fibres are exposed. These must then be hand-wound to create a continuous yarn for weaving. The yarn is washed in ash and boiling water, which acts as a natural bleaching-agent, then crushed by foot-mill to produce a shiny and smooth finish. The complete textile is then woven manually on a wooden and bamboo loom. The end result is a highly durable, hypo-allergenic material has been produced without the chemical treatment required by other plant materials.
Responsibly sourced indigo dye
Today’s traditional hand-dyeing techniques are quite strange in our modern lives, and almost dyeing process is mechanized with advanced techniques. However, The Hmong still retain their tradition. From specific plants, Hmong People dye their fabric with many featured colors extracted from their plants. From organic hemp dyed with those pigments, Viethnic’s artisans create our own products with environment protection significance. One of popular plants used is indigo which is very close with Hmong People’s life, they are source of natural blue. Depending on how dark the artisan wants to make the material, repeated dyeing and drying may be required.
