Textile Treasures of Asia

Textiles have been some of the earliest ambassadors to open the doors to a better understanding and respect for other people and cultures.  Throughout history all aspects of making cloth has been looked upon as significant.  Textiles made from rich and varied resources have triggered awe, jealousy, respect and wars through the millennia.  Images will show how the lifestyle, landscape, religion and regional resources have provided people with unique opportunities for silkworm rearing, yarn making, dyeing and design symbols to make cloth that is beautiful, distinct and part of their story.
