The For Kids' Sake International Textiles of Bangladesh Exhibit features many "Nakshi Kantha" pieces, embroidered quilts from the centuries-old art tradition of the Bengal region of the Indian subcontinent.

The For Kids' Sake International Textiles of Bangladesh Exhibit is open now through June 25 at the Longbranch Café & Bakery in Carbondale.

Organizers say patrons can purchase and take home the authentic, handmade Bangladeshi textiles.

The exhibit features hand-embroidered quilts, block printed textiles, and quilted art by Rosemary Fletter of Chicago.

Cotton wall hangings, bed covers, curtains, and more are available as well.

Each purchase from this show is considered a donation to support the 550 orphans and 4,000 students in For Kids' Sake International-supported facilities.

Everyone is invited to attend the Closing Reception at the Longbranch Café and Bakery on Saturday, June 24th from 1pm to 3pm.
