Heritage Festival
2014

Introduction


For the 22nd Annual Heritage Festival, the MInistry of Culture features Bahraini clothing and the techniques, tools and craftsmen involved in an edition entitled, Weaving Colors. Launched in 1993, the Annual Heritage Festival is a celebration of local culture and traditions, experienced through the island’s rich oral history, music, food, and close contact with the artisans whose contributions continue to shape Bahrain’s national identity. This year’s commemoration includes a rare display of treasured items from the National Museum’s archives, featuring a combination of historical items of clothing and intricate garments that exhibit the skilled handiwork of Bahrain’s artisans.
