About the American Textile Museum

Located in Carolama, northwest Washington, D.C., the American Textile Museum was founded in 1925 by George Hewitt Myers, a textile collector and connoisseur. It consists of two buildings designed to make more people understand the cultural importance of textiles in the world.

After decades of collection, the current collection can reach 19,000 pieces, spanning more than 5,000 years of history and collecting various textiles from 3000 BC to the present. The textiles in the museum come from all over the world and represent different costume cultures of different nationalities, including women's aprons on Java Island, Japanese kimonos, Chinese cloth in the 19th century, waistband jackets in Angola in the 19th century, peasant jackets in the Meiji Period of Japan, gowns in Uzbekistan in the mid-19th century, and Greek island 17.
