The National Textile Museum Kuala Lumpur and Cultural impact Sdn Bhd are proud to introduce “Sacred Ikat: From Heirloom to Trade”. This exhibition is at the Textiles museum until October 23rd.

Ikat textiles are found in cultures all over the world. Ikat is being woven in Argentina, Bolivia, Ecuador, Guatemala and Mexico and also in Uzbekistan in Central Asia. India, Japan and several South-East Asian countries have long histories of Ikat production. Among the most admired ikat come from the island of Sumba and also from Sarawak. The Pua Kumbu – of Sarawak- shares many similarities with the Hinggi of Sumba, yet the legends, symbolism and rituals that surrounding the two vary.

It’s a wonderful opportunity to see beautiful textiles from Sumba and Sarawak.

A series event is organized  in conjunction with the exhibition, starting on Tuesday September 20th,with a Textile Forum with international textiles experts : Judy Knight Achjadi, Edric Ong and Marie-Christine Tseng. The panel of speakers will deliberate on the development of the weaving and lifestyles of the Sumbanese and Ibans. They will also examine the balance between aesthetics and practicality of these ikat textiles. ADMISSION is Free.
