Visiting an authentic hilltribe village

I visited a traditional Akha hilltribe village in the mountains close to Chiang Mai in the northern part of Thailand. This village is supported by the hilltribe museum, they like to show how traditional clothing was made in the past. The whole process from weaving the fabric till embroidering it with many bright colours and small patterns is done by hand. That’s the reason why it’s a very long process and not so common anymore for the locals to make and wear these days.
