Clothing and textiles represent a critical part of our history. Rich in symbolic communication, they provide a window into how societies lived, worked, and communicated.

Discover the beautiful, and often untold story of ethnic garments in the U.S. at the exhibit, The Kaleidoscope of Textiles: Dress as Multidimensional Cultural Documents.

Hand curated by graduate students studying textiles, fashion merchandising, and design, this exhibit features ethnic garments from the University of Rhode Island’s Historic Textile and Costume Collection (HTCC). The garments on display represent clothing identified with various ethnic groups throughout U.S. history.
