"The threads of life: an overview of traditional Syrian textiles"
presented by the expert: PhD candidate: Estibaliz Sienra

In countries like Syria, traditional textiles represent a living testimony of ancient inherited knowledges and opulent customs that bestow people with a sense of identity and continuity through time. Every woven, embroidered or dyed piece explores through its symbolic and aesthetic values, the life of a craftsperson and an entire community. This presentation addresses Syrian traditional textile heritage, focusing on its history, production techniques and material resources, to demonstrate and appreciate their close relationship to social and cultural customs.
