Pictures of textile heritage projectsThe Foundation has been a significant funder of major textile heritage projects, including in recent years grants of £250,000 to the Ashmolean Museum’s new Textiles Gallery, £250,000 to the Warner Textile Archive and £173,000 to the Leeds International Textile Archive.

We are keen to assist in the preservation and accessibility of textile collections. Our interest is in cloth, rather than clothing or costumes, and we limit our support to collections which we consider to be of National importance.

Textile conservation is also an area of interest for us, both in ensuring the requisite skills are available and that major institutions have appropriate facilities.
