Family & Diaspora
Textiles create bonds between family and community members; they contain collective memories that are prompted by touch, smell, and stories of togetherness [companionship].
Living traditions of making, using, and storing family belongings form intergenerational bonds. Textiles are easily transported and can be moved from place to place with relative ease.
