Interwoven Globe: The Worldwide Textile Trade, 1500–1800
Through January 5, 2014
Beginning in the 16th century, the golden age of European exploration in search of spice routes to the east brought about an abundant textile trade. Textiles often acted as direct currency for spices, as well as other luxury goods. Textiles and designs made their way throughout the globe and blended the traditional designs, skills, and tastes of all of the cultures that produced them, resulting in objects that are both beautiful and historically fascinating. This exhibition includes works from across the Museum's collection—augmented by a few international loans— to highlight an important design story that has never been told from a truly global perspective.
