About Hani Hand Weaving
Living in the uplands of Northern Thailand (known as Akha), Laos, Vietnam and Yunnan Province in Southwest China, Hani people regard clothing as a form of art. Because they don't have a written language, Hani people carry their cultural heritage through the intricate patterns of their costume. Young girls learn how to spin cotton since early infancy. The cotton thread, dyed with local plants, is operated with a backstrap loom. This simple device is made of two bars, one fixed and the other attached with a strap around the back of the weaver who leans back to stretch the warp and interweaves the weft through the string heddles with the use of a shed roll, which are raised simply by loosening the stretch. The mix and match of colours and designs, from straight lines to loops, zigzags and geometric shapes produce an exclusive effect which is always new and different. Hani believe that everyone is unique and carries her story through her clothing, and that is why each piece is exquisitely unique.
