Welcome back, folks!

hali cvr

This title is a pretty one, with lots of inspiration inside. The title was formed by a group of collectors of non-fashion-related textiles and oriental rugs. It has grown into a central information place for collectors, curators, and researchers of related topics.

But what’s really satisfying about Hali are the exquisite, closeup photos of amazing textiles from all throughout time and all over the world. Even if you don’t care about textile design, these images are delicious and inspiring. Like this shah’s tent.

hali chintz

 

Or this 18th century Indian chintz imported to the US by Dutch traders.

 

 

hali indonesian

 

 

Or this Indonesian textile used to cover the coffin during the burial of King Umbu Hunga Meha of Karera in 2015.

Come take a look!
