Ethical fashion production to preserve Asian heritage crafts

To celebrate the cultural diversity in Asia, Sharon de Lyster puts together feature pieces from her label Narrative Made, which are inspired by heritage textiles to embrace the wealth and connectivity of Asian cultures with Hong Kong as a focal point. The exhibits include handwoven, hand-pleated garments from the Miao tribe in China, hand-drawn batik from Indonesia and hand-quilted, natural dyed and shibori dyed silk and cotton from Bangladesh. These garments are featured alongside the traditional tools that created them. In addition, the motifs, hand stitches, weaving techniques and natural dyes are showcased to bring forth the unshakable ethnic identities of the artisans.
