Textile has captured us for centuries and millenniums. They have been created by excellent artisans worldwide and used, cherished, and collected. Cultures spread and influenced each other through textiles. Even a road was formed, the silk road. They have always been living and breathing with us. When we softly and gently touch them, something more than we see, reaches to our hands. They travel through artisan's hands, through many previous stewards' hands, and to your hands. You are holding the history of the textile.
