    • The artistic tradition of Paj NTaub (pronounced Pan-Dow) means “Flower Cloth” and is a traditional form Hmong textile work that combines embroidery and reverse appliqué techniques. These were used to form geometric patterns in fabric that have had specific symbolic meanings. As the Hmong faced the upheaval of war and immigration, their textile traditions have both provided a link for Hmong Americans to continue perpetuating their culture, as well as evolving to encompass new experiences. While in the refugee camps in Thailand, Paj Ntaub techniques evolved and artists began creating Story Cloths, embroidered picture textiles that illustrate experiences of the Hmong people, from scenes of agricultural life into images of the war and their exile from Laos.
