Indonesia, with its richness in cultural traditions, ceremonies and rituals, has a tremendous legacy which is endlessly diverse. The legacy also includes thousands of textile varieties that are spread throughout the archipelago. It has been a lifelong dream for BIN house –one that began in the 1990s– to gather these rare pieces and display them in a museum. After 20 years of meticulous planning, the dream has transformed into an awe-inspiring, educative and informative site that whispers about harmony and diversity, two words that we are beginning to forget in modern times.
