Thai Hilltribe EmbroideriesStreaming Video - 2015
Intended to provide a complete and permanent record of surviving traditions and skills in textiles and crafts, the Ends of the Earth unique series show the processes in full, in detail and with all the clarity and colour made possible by modern video cameras. In many ways they are better than being there - pausing and replaying gives the possibility of checking again where the quickness of the hands has eluded or deceived the eye. This video shows in detail the embroideries of the six Hilltribes of Northern Thailand and the costumes that they adorn. Includes: a Karen blouse with seed emboidery, Yao trousers with horizontal/vertical stitch, a Lisu hat with stitched braids, a Lahu dress with patchwork panels, an Akha jacket with couched applique, Blue Hmong batik and applique and White Hmong reverse applique. All filmed in the villages of this beautiful mountain area.
