Across Borders: Textile Heritage


M7 presents Across Borders: Textile Heritage pop-up exhibition, designed by Lauren Michelle Morell. The exhibition aims to raise awareness of the environmental impacts of fast fashion and pay homage to sustainable Qatari Bedouin and indigenous American textile traditions through cross-cultural garments.

In commemoration of the 50th anniversary of diplomatic relations between the United States and Qatar, the exhibition is funded by a grant from the U.S. Department of State.

Rooted in both Qatari and indigenous American cultures, Across Borders: Textile Heritage showcases innovative approaches to preserving traditional and sustainable practices, highlighting Qatari sadu weaving and indigenous American patterns. In contrast to modern fashion production, the garments embody traditional, environmentally friendly textiles and promote the legacy of zero-waste processes. Lauren and her weaving collaborator, Sarah Hannibal, invite viewers to trace the traditions of Qatar and the Americas and reflect on sustainable sourcing and application of textiles and fabrics. In addition to garments, the exhibition features a short documentary tracing the traditions of sadu, filmed in collaboration with Heenat Salma Farm and Caravane Earth. The exhibition focuses on heritage preservation, sustainability, and diversity, achieving the ethos of cultures in harmony.
