How Are Our Daily Cotton Items Made?
During this interactive talk, the audience will be taken on a cotton manufacturing journey inspired by items from The D. H. Chen Foundation Gallery collection. Edith Cheung and Albert Chan, both well-known experts on the textile history of Hong Kong, will share with the audience the many stories behind the cotton items we use every day; how they were made and how they connect to the history of Hong Kong, Nan Fung Textiles and CHAT.
