The Spurlock Museum announces a new donation of a collection of Malaysian clothing. A gift of artists Billy Morrow Jackson and Siti Mariah Jackson of Champaign, Illinois, in memory of Fatimah Rautin (d.

Also included in the gift are batiks, a man's sarong, scarves, hats, belt, and jewelery.

Fatimah Rautin Ibrahim, mother of Siti Mariah Jackson, created traditional Malaysian wedding dresses, clothing, and wedding paraphernalia in her shop in Alor Setar, Kedah, Malaysia from the 1960's, through the 1990's. The shop, named "Fatisuri", is succeeded by her other daughter, Siti Mahiran Mansor to the present day.
