Thai Textile Society study trip to Kuala Lumpur
Nov '11
Textiles with rich gold threads, ikat patterns in deep vibrant colors, and intricate patterns in batik, are all an integral part of the history of the Malay Peninsula, the country of Malaysia.

The Thai Textile Society plans a visit to the Malaysian capital, Kuala Lumpur, from Friday, 13 January, until Monday, 16 January, 2012 to see the museums where a wide variety of these textiles are displayed.

By looking at extant textiles, we will learn about the influences of trade textiles on the evolution of the Malaysian textile tradition as well as the extensive variety of textile techniques and patterns produced by that tradition.

The Thai Textile Society is a non-profit organization dedicated to the study and appreciation of textiles, with particular emphasis on the textiles of Thailand and Southeast Asia.

Based in Bangkok, the Thai Textile Society was founded in 2004 when Kathleen Forance Johnson, wife of former U.S. Ambassador to Thailand Darryl Johnson, invited scholars, collectors, and other textile enthusiasts to establish a society dedicated to the study, appreciation, and preservation of the textile arts in the kingdom and the region.
