Connecting Threads and Woven Stories gives a glimpse into the rich and diverse textile traditions of Southeast Asia. The textiles vary in style, material, and technique, including nineteenth-century Indonesian tapis, a Vietnamese photo-weaving, and a contemporary Thai textile woven with jewel beetle wings. Despite their differences, these textiles tell the stories of the peoples who made them, their cultural values, and their legacies.
