Weaving Paradise: Southeast Asian Textiles and Their Creators, A Textile Exhibition from The Tilleke & Gibbins Textile Collection

Weaving Paradise is the catalogue of an exclusive exhibition held at the Jim Thompson Art Center curated by Dr. Linda S. McIntosh. The exhibition focused on the importance of women’s work as textile producers in Southeast Asian societies and also recognized the artistry of each textile and the creativity of the producers. Although the numerous cultures found in this region are diverse, some similarities are found how they value women as the creators of textiles. Museum-quality examples from the Tilleke & Gibbins Textile Collection illustrated these aspects.
