About Emma Joran
Joran was born and raised in the Marshall Islands, and learned how to weave by watching her mother and other women in the community weave. She has taught weaving to Pacific Islander students at the University of Washington, and actively researches the Burke's weaving collections from the Marshall Islands, including 19th-century jaki-ed, which were used as women's clothing prior to the arrival of missionaries on the islands.
