You know I have a thing for swapping out pillows, right?! So it should come as no surprise that I've been sourcing new options to use in our family room once this round of renovations are over. Two particular fabrics, known as "mud cloth" and "hmong", have really caught my attention. I absolutely love the texture and pattern of these textiles!

Hmong textile art, or "flower cloth", is a traditional art practiced by the Hmong people - an ethnic group from the mountainous regions of China, Vietnam, Laos, and Thailand. The embroidered cloths have bold geometric designs that are often interwoven in bright, contrasting colors.
The popularity of both mud cloth and Hmong textiles has really surged in recent years, making a worldwide appearance in fashion, art, and home decor.
