ROM Textiles & Fashions

From prehistory through to the present day, textile production has been a fundamental part of human existence. ROM Textiles & Fashions presents the rich heritage of textiles and fashion from around the world, drawing on the ROM’s collection of 50,000 fragile and sensitive objects and our extensive curatorial expertise. Rotating exhibits of weaving, needlework, printed and archaeological textiles, and silks related stories that interweave cultures and societies and record intimate histories, politics and ingenious innovation.
