With their brilliant colors and engaging designs, early painted and printed textiles were eagerly sought for fashionable clothing and home furnishings. But textiles also tell human stories that sound modern: traders transporting goods from the other side of the world in ships powered by wind and sails; domestic workers trying their best to respond to foreign competition; people making the effort to dress in up-to-date styles despite their limited means; and the important of chemistry and mechanical expertise in the production of consumer goods.
The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation in Williamsburg, Virginia, hosts this symposium about painted and printed textiles used for clothing, home furnishings, and bed quilts. The stimulating program includes distinguished guest speakers and a series of juried papers by respected scholars.
