Welcome to the tribaltextiles.info website. On this site you will find mainly pictorial information on tribal textiles with a strong regional focus on southwest China and southeast Asia (currently more than 70 photogalleries and studies, articles and exhibitions as well as diaries of textile-related travel linked to the various country pages). The concentration is very much on textiles constructed from traditional techniques and worn as clothing. Where possible the textiles are shown in context, being made and worn in villages and towns by people for whom the textiles form part of their culture and indentity. The site was launched in January 2002 based on the tribal textile material originally published on the pacross.net website which was first launched in May 2000. The tribaltextiles.info site continues to be gradually expanded in both depth, breadth and contributors – watch what’s new.
