Theme :
Traditional Embroidery

Traditional embroidery in many ways weaves itself into people’s lives in various cultures, telling their cultural and historical story. The symbols and motifs are part
of greater cultural significance and relevance through which we can obtain a better understanding of the people’s history and traditions. In this volume, we
explore the symbolic importance of various embroidery traditions of the Asia-Pacific region with a focus on the traditional embroidery art of Tajikistan, Myanmar,
Bhutan, and Malaysia.
