Dress the World

If you are anywhere near Nottingham in the next month; if you have an interest in the history of textiles; if you have a fascination with China and it's traditional patterns; if you have an interest in the use of silk; if any of this piques your curiosity then you might want to visit the Castle Museum and Art Gallery.

Let the pictures speak for themselves:  They come from the Dress the World website and each picture is linked to take you to the site or to the What's On site.  None of the jpg's come close to the originals.

    1. It is quite incredible, they have fragments of woven silk from the 5th century.
