TEXTILE SOCIETY EVENT
The Textile Society annual collectors’ fair in Chelsea.
The Textile Society London Antique Textile Fair offers an outstanding range of vintage fashion, antique textiles and costume sourced from around the world. Textiles from the 18th century up to the swinging 1960s and 70s, furnishings including pre-1950s rugs, and unique fashion accessories can be found here. Visitors can explore the fair for secondhand books, ephemera and advice on textile conservation.
Whether a textile designer or student looking for design inspiration, a collector looking for a unique addition, or just a visitor wanting to browse beautiful materials and objects, this fair cannot be missed.
Proceeds from the Textile Society fairs and events provide student bursaries, professional development, and museum and conservation awards. These awards reflect the Society’s commitment to supporting education and promoting knowledge within the breadth of textile disciplines.
