The original traditional textiles from nomads all over the world are highly decorative. They often feature elaborate silk embroidery techniques.

Most items in this section are suzani wall-hangings, indigo cloths from Africa, Pakistani tapestries and Miao textiles from China.

The Miao are renowned for their beautifully detailed yet sturdy babycarriers, baby boots, wedding shoes and embroidered cloths. A typical feature of the Miao work is their incredible eye for details and their peerless embroidery techniques.

The suzani wallhangings hail from Uzbekistan, traditionally they were used on the walls of the Uzbek houses. Hoe hoger de materiaal- en borduurkwaliteit, hoe hoogstaander de familie werd.
