Textile Arts of Britain: A commodity for the colonies

Now Open at The DeWitt Wallace Decorative Arts Museum

Now on view in the Alaimo Gallery, learn the story of the most important industry in 18th century Great Britain. The 13 British North American colonies were the biggest market for the trade, and more fabric flowed to North America than any other commodity. From the simplest wash cloth to the most elaborate furniture upholstery and fashionable clothing, textiles were spun, woven, and finished in British factories to be sold by merchants around the globe. Visit the exhibition at The DeWitt Wallace Decorative Arts Museum to learn more.
