Vietnam - ethnic minorities (by retlaw snellac)



Imagine the work that went into that. Makes me feel humble and a bit ashamed that I don't have this attachment to my cultural roots (Welsh, English, Irish). Our so-called civilised Western society seems to have become bland and homogenised.

Oh, no, you should not! Many countries have traditional costumes that are labour intensive. They might be the masterpieces of their own kind... I am sure you can find pieces in the museums in your country that you can be proud of. This hat is pretty, but it is far from being a masterpiece :)
