Collector’s Corner EMBROIDERY OF REGIONAL MINORITIES
EMBROIDERY OF REGIONAL MINORITIES
Saturday, 7 June 2014
Embroidery has been used to augment the clothing of people the world over. Khun Chomporn Dhanesnittaya has an impressive collection of embroidered textiles belonging to tribal and minority groups in Central and Southeast Asia, including the exotic Naga people of Myanmar and the Miao. A variety of materials were used to adorn these garments and bags, applying beads, natural seeds and sea shells to both silk and cotton. Khun Chomporn will tell us of the origins and techniques, patterns and symbolism used on these colorful and unusual pieces.
