Ethnographic Textile Heritage of America

The correct documentation of textiles undoubtedly requires the work of specialists.

Remembering that when an article of this nature is incorporated into the collection of a museum, its category, origin and value are duly verified.

But it is also necessary to document it technically or scientifically. For their documentation and identification, it is necessary, first of all, “to know where to look and what to look for”.

Knowing how to associate techniques, raw materials, designs, etc. to different contexts-, will also allow the researcher to relate certain materiality and visuality with a reality or society.

In this Ethnographic Textile Heritage of America course, Prof. Ximena González Eliçabe proposes identification and classification sessions for textile pieces in a collection. Meet Prof. Ximena González Eliçabe in our welcome video to the course here:
