Thu Thu

Thu Thu tribal embroidered biker jacket

During my research trying to find the next big thing, I stumbled upon my new favorite line, Thu Thu. Thu Thu is the label of designer Thuy Duong Nguyen. Thuy, born in Vietnam, unites western style with the Far East. Each design is a blend of fabrics and handcrafted Vietnamese embroideries. Featured in print magazine for fall 2012, this embroidered and patchwork biker jacket is anything but basic. Take the classic for a spin and travel to distant places and older times with Thu Thu.

  1. Hi, Katina. You may not know this, but the fabric used to make these clothes are authentic Hmong designs. All the patterns are made by cross stitches. Everything is done by hand. The cloth on the background are done by marking the fabric with wax and then dying it in ink.

    I am in the process of collecting photographs of innovative Hmong designs.
