Textile Fun at the SF Asian Art Museum

I was delighted to spend this afternoon at the Asian exploring Weaving Stories, an exhibition of textiles from Indonesia, Malaysia, and the Philippines.

The textures and colors were GREAT!

There were multiple videos screening which showed the complex techniques used to make the different fabrics...  There's a lot of work in pattern design, yarn-making, dyeing, loop preparations, resist-applications...  It's all fantastic to see.  There is some amazingly gorgeous work, and it's great to see videos of the artisans who have these wild skills.

I dress very plainly, but I appreciate the technical and creative brilliance that went into these fabrics.
