Connecting Threads - Hand Stiched Stories about Romanian Soul

Wed Dec 01 2021 at 06:00 pm to 09:00 pm UTC-07:00

Connect Lounge Seattle | Seattle

Connecting Threads - Hand Stiched Stories about Romanian Soul Connect Lounge and Doria are inviting you to an exhibition of Romanian folk costumes dating back to the Interwar Period.
Not even a century ago, people still made their own clothes at home. Not only did they put pieces of fabric together, but also they embellished them, and embedded ancestral codes and magic spells into them. Stitched by hand at the candlelight, each shirt, dress and gown is a piece of art, a true folk haute couture item. And each of them tells a story. The story of who I am, where I am from, and what I hope life will have in store for me.
Doria, a private collector of cultural textiles, who runs the project Ethereal Embroideries by Doria, will offer a visual guide of how to read a Romanian traditional shirt, what are the signs hidden in plain sight, and what they mean.
An immersive experience into Romanian culture through the display of Romanian folk art is waiting for you to join. Internationally awarded Romanian wines and Romanian sweet treats will be available for purchase during the reception.
