Thổ cẩm Sapa

There are 53 ethnic minorities in Vietnam and each minority has its own textiles tradition and costume. There are crossovers but they still remain quite distinct as each tribe has its own symbolisms and patterns marking their identity. When you are up north the cloth is heavier because of the weather but as you go down south, silk becomes the fabric of choice. The most defining element of textiles in Vietnam is its surface decoration and fabric manipulation techniques such as pleating, i-kat. Also, color holds a key role.
