Presentation on India inspired SE Asian hand-woven textile

05
Apr '12
Dr. Linda S. McIntosh, consulting curator of the Tilleke & Gibbins Textile Collection and Life time member of the Thai Textile Society will give a presentation on various hand-woven textiles produced in Mainland Southeast Asia that were inspired by Indian trade textiles.

The patola was the most influential trade textile in the mainland, and it was reproduced in weft ikat rather than double ikat technique by weavers in Cambodia, Laos, and Thailand.

The brocades from Varanasi (Banares) were also replicated by weavers in these countries, and the locally woven versions were used in clothing styles of the courts. No surviving examples of patola have been found in Mainland Southeast Asia, but some brocades, especially those worn as drama costume, have survived. The presentation will be illustrated with examples from the Tilleke & Gibbins Textile Collection.

Dr Linda S. McIntosh is a curator Southeast Asian textiles with a focus on weavings produced in the mainland. She grew up listening to the repetitious beats of her Lao mother's loom, learning how to weave from her mother at a young age.
