Glorious Textiles of the Islamic World Exhibition

PIIACUF 2016, proudly presents a unique and varied range of intricate textiles using skills and techniques such as embroidery, weaving and ‘ikat’. Fine textile made of cotton, wool, linen and silk were commonly traded that they were so precious to become a form of currency. Textiles were and are still a vital economic component of Islamic civilization that symbolizes artistic expressions of Islamic history and culture.

The exhibition will display the finest example of fabrics, including rare example of traditional Muslim & Mughal clothing dated from the early Islamic civilization up to the present time. Also available for display is the Collection of Royal Head-dress (Tengkolok) which Malay Rulers have worn as part of their regalia.

The exhibition will also feature the Replica of Prophet Adam’s Robe (the biggest robe in the world) originated from Saudi Arabia which took 18 days to be completed measuring at 29 metres tall. The robe was made realized by 5 Saudi’s designers by using 40 rolls of cloth and 30,000 thread rolls.


Yurt

In 2015, one of the showpiece of the festival that gained phenomenal attention was the beautiful Kyrgyz Yurt – a portable, round, tent-like dwelling used by nomadic folks of the Kyrgyz, one of the world’s most ancient people. Designers and makers of the Yurt, journeyed to Putrajaya from Kyrgyzstan to erect the 20-foot diameter tent. PIIACUF 2016, once again bring back the Yurt to Putrajaya for those who missed it last year and wanted to spend some time walking in and around it. The yurt exhibition helps gain understanding of how others developed an infrastructure that’s almost in complete opposite to the one we know.
