The Thai Textile Society

Presents a Lecture

 by Ms. Yoko Osaki

This lecture will focus on the unique textiles of Flores, one of the eastern islands of Indonesia, and how designs were inspired by the Patola – Indian double ikat textile traded in Southeast Asia, especially at peak of spice trade in sixteenth and seventeenth centuries

Ms. Osaki will describe her passion of these traditional sacred heirloom textiles, their functions, weaving techniques, etc. She will bring samples of “Patola” and beaded sarong of Flores to illustrate some design elements in comparison and will explain why these textiles were most prized among the indigenous. 

The Thai Textile Society would like to thank The Siam Society for their support with this Lecture
