Special Textile Collection-Evacuation

The items shown below are a synopsis of what is on our special textile collection racks. They are organized so that in case of a disaster these textile racks are handled first, thus we call them our evacuation racks. These items are in their boxes in loose  categories but the boxes themselves on the rack may not be in the same category. They are listed here by rack and box number. The items themselves will also appear under the proper category on their corresponding page for easy location for researchers. Only one photo of each item is shown here but more photos and information  may be found on their proper category page by clicking on the blue linked words and scrolling down to the proper item(s).

It is important  to note that not all the pieces that come to the  museum are in perfect condition but are a clue to our textile history. Before discarding a piece that is not in perfect condition but may have historic value, please contact a museum, a university, and/or a library. Once the piece is gone, the history may be lost forever! Some of these pieces are slotted for conservation in the future.
