This is an unusual exhibit created around the color blue, showing how indigo brings different moods to the textile throughout the history and throughout the world.
The exhibits encompasses a lot of beautiful pieces like Indonesian ikats, African batiks, Japanese kimonos, Belgium tapestries, and, Egyptian rugs. Each piece is outstanding by its aesthetic and by the technic used.
Don’t miss the contemporary installation made of colored panels dyed in different shades of blue. In the same room you can see dried leaves of indigo plant hanging on the walls along with an explanation of how indigo pigment is obtained from a very special green plant.
I enjoyed a lot my quiet time around these beautiful pieces.
Hungry after your visit, grab a coffee or a lunch here.
From April 9 through October 9th 2016
