Final Destin’Asian

May 20, 2022

“A special trip to the highlands of northern Vietnam to explore the amazing natural landscapes and visit a few of the 54 ethnic tribes in Vietnam.

There are 4 types of Hmong people that live in this area. The Red Hmong, Black Hmong, Green Hmong and the Flower Hmong tribes. We visited a very remote region that is dominated by the Flower Hmong people and we explored the Bac Ha market which is rarely seen by outsiders.  Here the Flower Hmong women do all sorts of business dressed in their traditional clothing which is renowned for the colorful hand woven motifs.

The fabric I bought for this tote is inspired by the traditional clothing of the Flower Hmong women.” - Traveler Aaron John

Here’s to enjoying the journey, no matter what the destin’Asian, & to feeling good - because after all, it’s Friday.
