Vietnamese Laos Hmong women's embroydered indigo jacket

This beautiful coat dates from the 1950's and is fairly large for a Hmong item( fits my wife perfectly and she is about 5'6" tall and medium build ). These are made by saturating fabric with indigo until the dye forms a sort of shiny iridescent coating that is also water resistant. Then traditional patterns are sewn into the coat using various thread. These items take many hours to make, and are rarely made anymore. Excellent condition.
