Tales on Textiles

Every fabric, every weave tells a story. What's the history of the clothes you are wearing?

More than just a means to cover or decorate one's body, a piece of clothing serves as an important piece of one's heritage. On your next travel, pay close attention to the traditional garments the locals are wearing. Take notice its fine embroidery, bold colors, or intricate bead work. Learn to appreciate the clothing beyond its physical appearance and dig into what it means to the wearer's culture and history.

Each participant may submit up to 10 photographs. This competition serves as the qualifying round of the Breaking Boundary category.
