Hilltribe peoples of Thailand

Jennifer Hughes gave a fascinating talk on the nature of  clothing and decoration used by different tribes of the northern region of Thailand. Some of these groups had their derivations in China and others from Burma with their clothing reflecting the ethnic groups from those areas. Jennifer brought so many examples and also showed how to wear them and explained when they would have been worn. Absolutely fascinating and such stunning needlework with both sides of the material just perfect.
