Textile Art - Textiles Art and antique rugs are part of an artistic weaving tradition that spans the globe. Over thousands of years, textiles completed an incredible evolution from a humble handcraft to a high art with extreme aesthetic and cultural value. Artistic textile weaving is a diverse tradition that accommodates all of the cultures that embrace the craft. Textiles are pure cultural artifacts that reflect local superstitions and often have artistic immunity from outside influences.

In its most rudimentary form, textile weaving was a way to produce clothing and practical cloths for daily use. As technology advanced, textiles became more and more artistic. Embroidered embellishments and complex woven decorations helped these cultural textiles become a great art form. The function of these artistic textiles is not purely decorative, however. Some shamanic cloths from Laos were used in rituals while Kente cloth garments were made for prestigious members of the community. Textiles from Europe often feature refined decorations and elaborate compositions that are purely decorative. Chinese rank badges, on the other hand, use flamboyant symbols that were part of a complex status system. Even the small country of Uzbekistan has a unique textile tradition in the decorative Suzani embroideries, which certainly qualify as works of art.

These beautiful textiles are highly complex assemblages that require many labor-intensive processes. Phenomenal Ikat fabrics and the flamboyant fabrics used in Chyrpi coats require dyed threads to be arranged in elaborate patterns before the weaving begins. African Kente cloths are woven in narrow pieces that are stitched together, and this time-consuming technique produces a distinctive checkerboard effect.
