Weaving Splendor: Treasures of Asian Textiles

Weaving Splendor: Treasures of Asian Textiles presents rarely seen Chinese, Indian, Japanese, and Persian costumes and textiles drawn from the renowned collection of The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art. Made with fine materials, exemplary techniques, and stunning artistry, Asian luxury textiles were central to global trade. The extraordinary stories of these treasures take guests on a journey along trade routes across continents, and through time, from the 1500s to today. Luxurious costumes of the court conveyed power, while striking theater robes brought stage characters to life. Sturdy wall hangings and furniture covers transformed palaces, temples, and homes, while shimmering tapestry-woven carpets were created as diplomatic gifts for foreign rulers.
