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.
