Lifescene producers are pleased and proud to be able to show other people their way of life. Each Lifescene portrait is a unique original - no two are alike! The artist stitches a unique scene and story on each individual work. There are no patterns as Lifescenes are based on life experiences and events of the artist. Artisans will stitch such scenes as typical village homes, feeding animals, and planting and harvesting rice.
CAMACRAFTS offers three styles of Lifescenes: Hmong, Lao and Animal. The first style, Hmong, is made and produced by Hmong women who embroider scenes typical to the daily life of the Hmong people group. Lao style Lifescenes feature characteristic scenes of the Lao people living in villages. Finally, the Animal style of Lifescene features various animals that the Hmong or Lao producers come in regular contact with.
All cross-stitch and embroidered lifescenes are sewn with colorfast, washable products. In order to increase the longevity of the embroidery we recommend handwashing each article. Do not wring. Lay flat to dry so that the shape is not distorted. If the cloth is wrinkled after drying, iron the wrong side but not the side displaying the embroidery.
