Featured Collection: The Tilleke & Gibbins Textile Collection

Textile Society of America Newsletter, Spring Summer 2009

In the Textile Society of America’s series on textile collections throughout the world, the history and purpose of the Tilleke & Gibbins Textile Collection are highlighted. The Collection’s mission to exhibit textiles originating from the cultures composing mainland Southeast Asia is given: to enrich the working environment of Tilleke & Gibbins’ offices; to preserve Southeast Asia’s textile heritage; and to expand the appreciation of this art form to the general public. The latter is carried out through in-house displays as well as loaning some of the textiles for exhibits at other institutions.
