Sewing workshop of a Hmong woman, north of Chiang Mai, Thailand. She allowed me to select some samples from the bag of discarded scraps on the floor. She is wearing a traditional black jacket with elbow length sleeves, decorated with embroidered bands. These bands match the front edges of the jacket. The bands do not go around the back of the neck. At the neck back there is a small square or rectangle of matching embroidery work which is attached at the neck.
