Although the H'mong are regarded by some as an unprivileged minority they are a very outgoing people. The making and selling of traditional garments has certainly grown with the increase of tourism. The older garments are the best to buy because the dye has set and their authenticity is appealing. The dye in the newer garments is not properly set and can come off on your hands and also when washing. H'mong women selling these garments have dye stained hands and that gives a clue concerning the set of the dye. Talking of dye we came across a lovely dog, called "Donny" whose mane has been dyed so that he looks very much like a little lion. All the locals know of Donny so you should not have any problems finding him.
