"Textiles" explores the cultural meaning and exquisite workmanship found in the Museum of International Folk Art's vast collection that spans centuries and includes pieces from seventy countries around the world. Handcrafted work in beautiful, vivid colours typifies the clothing, hats, robes, bedding, and shoes that represent the lives and passions of the people who created and used them. The Museum opened to the public in 1953 and has gained national and international recognition as the home to the world's largest collections of international folk art with more than 135,000 artifacts.
