{kuala lumpur} only for textiles

October 29, 2016

On my last day in Kuala Lumpur, I ran into a random man on the street who stressed that I really need to visit the National Textiles Museum. I had actually walked by it a few times in the previous days and thought about it but it was always already closed for the day or not open for whatever reason (national holidays and such). On my last day, after hearing what the random street man said, I decided to give the place another try and I’m so glad I did!

Not only was the museum free (which always makes things better), it was open when I walked by! Walking in, I didn’t really know what to expect, but as it turns out, it was such an interesting learning experience. I learned about the various fabrics and patterns that are prominent in each of the regions in Malaysia; I learned more about the various cultures that are required to live some-what harmoniously in the country; and I learned about all the various types of metal work that goes into making beautiful jewelry in particular for special events and weddings. What a neat and free way to spend a couple of hours in KL!
