This show reveals some of the stunning textile industry archive collections held by the University of Glasgow.

A rare opportunity to see a selection of the Scottish made patterns, designs and fabrics that furnished and dressed a large part of the world in the 19th and 20th Centuries. Featured collections include the giant United Turkey Red Company, which manufactured dyes in the Vale of Leven; the influential Stoddard-Templeton carpet designers and manufacturers, the House of Fraser Archive and the famous Paisley thread manufacturers; J&P Coats and the Clark Thread Co.
