Seattle's Burke Museum of Natural History and Culture is currently presenting the first major exhibition of its international textile collection, Weaving Heritage: Textile Masterpieces from the Burke Collection.
Previously, the museum's international textile collection has been used as research of textile works produced by indigenous peoples, but most have never been on public display.
For the first time, 130 of the most beautifully designed and culturally significant textile masterpieces from the Americas, Asia and the Pacific Islands will be part of the display.
The exhibition runs through February 27, 2011.
