The TMC collection has examples of many kinds of techniques used to make textiles, including felting, weaving, knitting, and braiding. Explore one technique and you will find a wide range of variations; for instance, two textiles may be tapestry-woven but one is a wool textile from South America, thick and sturdy and patterned with simple stripes, while the other, a delicate, lustrous silk textile from China, presents the sinuous image of a dragon.
