’Black H’mong girls in Lao Chai.'
Two girls of the Black H'mong mountain tribe stand on the verandah of their house in Lao Chai village, 5 km east of Sapa. Behind them hangs a piece of indigo coloured cloth, decorated with the batik technique. In most H'mong villages basins with indigo dye can be found. Photo Mick Palarczyk
