Abstract

This research aims to 1) study patterns and Hmong pattern prototype fabrication, 2) to design and develop Hmong tribal top, and 3) to explore satisfaction towards Hmong tribal top. A sample of 378 participants from Hmong communities residing in Mae Chaem District, Samoeng District and Ganlayani District of Chiang Mai involved in this study were accidentally selected. Satisfaction questionnaires towards Hmong tribal top were composed of aspects on styling, sewing, wearing, patterning and two Hmong tribal tops, each for male and female prototypes, were used as research instruments for collecting customer satisfaction data. The descriptive used for statistical analysis in this research were frequency, percentage, arithmetic mean and standard deviation.


            The study found that Hmong tribal has been fabricating their outfits based on estimation without any pattern, and the highest rated criteria were comfortable to wear, easily flexible to move, and non-clingy to body. The majority of male respondents were more satisfied with the first design of Hmong male tribal top prototype (mean=4.31, SD=0.37) than the second one (mean=4.25, SD=0.35) at the 0.05 statistical significance level, indicating their high level of satisfaction with the prototype. Meanwhile, the majority of female respondents were more satisfied with the first design of Hmong female tribal top prototype (mean=4.35, SD=0.49) than the second one (mean=4.27, SD=0.42) at the 0.05 statistical significance level, indicating the high satisfaction level.
