The Hmong Hill Tribe People of northern Thailand, Laos and Vietnam may be best known for their role in the CIA secret war in Laos during the Vietnam war era where they fought overwhelming North Vietnamese forces resulting in vast casualties for their people.  Following the war, most of them fled to northern Thailand.  Apart from that tragic historical moment, they are known for their colorful hand made fabric. 

These vintage fabrics have been crafted into stuffed elephant figures of varying sizes and colors.  Elephants were always revered by the Hmong people and represent a cornerstone of their culture.  Profits from the sale of these elephants will be directed to Asian elephant conservation.
