|Statement about this object||
According to Bounthavy (Vee) Kiatoukaysy, this design is unusual. The small embroidered panel on top is indicative of White Hmong, while the indigo panel on the bottom is Blue Hmong (also known as Green Hmong).
In the bottom panel, the red fabric is a hook motif and sewn in the tuck and fold process, which the Hmong call "chev."
