Textile Tour in its collections

Visitors to the Brooklyn Museum can take a special textile tour via the Museum’s ASK app, the tour, created especially for NYTM, will allow visitors to trace the textiles displayed and represented in the museum’s collections and artworks. In addition, each day a printed fabric designed and manufactured in New York City in the 1930’s will be highlighted on the Museum’s tumblr page, as a reminder that New York once produced textiles on its doorstep, inviting start-ups to reconsider to local production again. Designs by figures such as Anni Albers and Elsa Schiaparelli will be featured.
