The Tilleke & Gibbins Textile Collection
Influence of Indian Trade Textiles in Mainland Southeast Asia
Presentation by Dr. Linda S. McIntosh
October 25, 2012
1:30 pm - 3:00 pm

Dr. Linda S. McIntosh,  Consulting  Curator, examines  how Indian  trade textiles  have influenced handwoven textiles  of Mainland Southeast  Asia, primarily Cambodia, Laos, and Thailand. Three main types of textiles will be the focus of the presentation. These textile types are decorated with resist- and mordant-dyed  technique  and drawing; double  and weft  ikat; and supplementary weft techniques. The trade textiles were consumed by the exclusively  courts  for centuries,  but local versions  began to be produced throughout the region. Examples of trade textiles and locally produced cloth from the Tilleke & Gibbins Textile Collection will be on display. This talk was first presented in April for the Textile Enthusiasts’ Group, Friends of the Museum, Singapore.

The event is free.
