Making World Textile Day COVID safe for you

In 2020 we managed only one World Textile Day. Our visitors – while relatively few – were very grateful for something positive in an otherwise negative year.

In 2021 we hope to delight you with our planned programme of expert guest speakers, exhibits and on-site catering: everything you need for a great textile day out.

If government restrictions or common sense say so, we’ll scale back and adapt to create a COVID safe event for you to enjoy.

What makes World Textile Day special?

The TEXTILES, of course, sourced by our experts on their world travels.

But it’s also about  YOU. World Textile Day is your chance to see, handle and buy textile treasures you won’t find anywhere else.

And, it’s about the PEOPLE – past and present – who’ve devoted their creative and technical skills to producing amazing cloths for ceremonial and daily use around the world.

What  have people said about World Textile Day?

World textile experts share their knowledge, experience and enthusiasm with you – the clothaholics of the world. Workbox magazine.

FWhat a delight! Bought four presents for others and one for me too. Yippee. R.K.

Your biggest fan is feeling massive withdrawal symptoms… a whole year without World Textile Day… see you when possible. T.P.

World textile day is my favourite day of the year.  One of our VERY enthusiastic visitors!
