Hawai’i Craftsmen’s Fiber Hawai’i 2014 exhibit includes an “inspired by” category linked to the Honolulu Museum of Art. Textile curator Sara Oka led a behind-the-scenes tour, sharing a few of the pieces from the museum’s textile collection, as well as of Remaining Remnants, currently on view at the museum. Shown above is a kantha quilt from India, typically made with pieces of old fabric and heavily embroidered.
