The Textile Museum Journal



Our peer-reviewed journal is the leading publication for the exchange of textile scholarship in North America. We release a new volume each fall, digitally and in print. Articles feature research on the cultural, technical, historical and aesthetic significance of textiles from all around the world. The journal was published from 1962 to 2004, and then reinstated in 2017 thanks to support from the Markarian Foundation.

Museum members receive free digital access to the journal as part of their membership benefits. Subscription options are available for libraries, museums and other academic institutions.



About the Current Volume


The Textile Museum Journal: Volume 49



Guest edited by Jeffrey C. Splitstoser, volume 49 is devoted to the relationship between textiles and mathematics. Seven articles by senior and emerging scholars from a variety of disciplines — including art, art history, anthropology, mathematics and practicing artists — offer new insights into the mathematical aspects of textile production and the ways mathematics can be used to find new meaning in ancient and historical textiles. Read the list of articles in this volume.
