More than 40 outstanding examples of textiles and garments from across Indonesia, as well as the Philippines and Malaysia, are brought together to consider how fabrics are woven not only into the daily lives but the cultural foundations of these communities. Weaving Stories shows how handmade and naturally dyed textiles provide a platform for self-expression and social meaning for women, both as artistic innovators and as vital transmitters of scientific knowledge.
