Elephant Footprint Denim Cap

  • One size (adjustable)

In the Hmong hill tribes of Thailand, Vietnam and surrounding countries, the elephant holds a special place in the culture.  In Hmong embroidery, the elephant is represented with a pattern know as The Elephant Footprint, a representation for "Prosperity".

In ancient times, the embroidered patterns served double duty -- to decorate and to communicate. According to oral history, long ago when the Hmong were still concentrated in China, they were forbidden to use their original, written language, which was made up of picture symbols. So the women started sewing the symbols into their skirts to create messages, disguising them as patterns.
