A Look  At Rare Chin and Attapeau Textiles
Saturday, 14 November 2009
Time:
10.30 a.m.
at Ayoraya Gallery


We have the opportunity to view textiles that are not commonly seen. These
were woven by the Chin people who live in western
Myanmar. Their textiles,
mostly tube skirts, tunics and blankets, are distinguished by a tight weave
which is warp-faced plain weave with one-faced supplementary weft
patterning. We will also be able to view textiles from Attapeu, the far
southeastern
province of Laos where very often beads are woven into the
textiles to create pleasing geometric motifs and designs.

We will get a sneak preview of the exhibition that will open at the Ayoraya
Gallery later in the day, with a display of 100 selected textiles. Khun
Chomporn Dhanesnittaya, the owner of the gallery and member of the
committee of the Thai Textile Society, will tell us about the history of
many of these pieces, explain the designs and motifs, and the colors used.
