Printed Fashions: Textiles for Clothing and Home
With their stunning designs and bright colours, the objects in the exhibit Printed Fashions: Textiles for Clothing and Home are a feast for the eyes. Printed fabrics were used to make fashionable clothing and to upholster home furnishings. While visually arresting, these textiles also had economic importance as trade goods and as examples of technological advances. A variety of techniques were used to create innumerable patterns, including resist printing, block printing, copperplate printing and roller printing.
