We recently sold one of our XL (64 x 96 inches) Hmong History Storycloths to the Queensland Art Gallery for $1400 and after they received the storycloth we received the following email below. Receiving emails like this make it all worthwhile for Bai and I. You can see similar storycloths we still have available here. The photo you see above is a storycloth almost exactly like the one we sold which includes Wat Tham Krabok in the lower left-hand corner, the informal refugee camp in Thailand that closed in 2004, but not before over 14,000 Hmong were given refugee status and came to the US.
Dear Peter and Bai: I am writing to thank you for your assistance with securing the wonderful Hmong History storycloth for our contemporary textile collection here at the Queensland Art Gallery. I have been impressed with your passion for Laos textiles and the high level of professional service you provide to your online customers. Laos Essential Artistry provides important opportunities for Laos textile artists to market their works to international collectors, museums and galleries via an easy to navigate website. Your obvious commitment to the artists ensures that all works are well documented with an established provenance essential to institutional collections. I have appreciated you prompt attention to all of my enquiries and willingness to undertake additional research where required. Thank you again.
