The Hmong people of Southeast Asia are known the world over for their skill in the arts. One of their most well known traditional arts is that of batik, a textile dying technique which uses resist to create bright patterns in the negative on dyed fabrics. Hmong artisans hand draw the designs in wax, and then dye the textiles in a deep blue indigo dyebath, after which the wax is removed to reveal the patterns of birds, fish, flowers, and other natural symbols. In this book, Nic Tharpa Cartier has adapted traditional Hmong batik motifs for use in henna. The book features 25 patterns which are striking and bold, full of natural symbolism and graceful energy. Patterns range from beginner to advanced levels. Become closer to nature as you explore the world of these fantastic designs!
