Hmong Quilted Story Earrings - Red

Hmong Quilted Story Earrings - Red

Regular price $15.00

Hmong Quilted Story Earrings are a Hmong textile art of quilting and embroidery the consists of bold geometric designs often realized in bright, contrasting colors. Different patterns and techniques of production are associated with different geographical regions and cultural subdivisions within the global Hmong community.  They are also referred to as "story cloths" because the Hmong language did not become alphabetized until 1950, many Hmong refugees did not record their histories in writing. These “story cloths” became a recording and expression of both individual and collective experiences including trauma and loss across generations.  Touched by deep cultural love and hardship to keep the Hmong culture alive, these earrings are a beautiful and meaningful gift of love and endurance.  I find them so current in fashion and timely right now.  They are a lovely bright story worn on your ears. Dimensions are 1'' W x 1" H
