World Textile Day

World Textile Day is my favourite day of the year!

FREE exhibition woven, printed and embroidered textiles from around the world

Every year - along with our fellow world textile experts - we tour the UK with a new one day exhibitiion of fair trade world textiles: all there for you to ogle, handle, admire and even buy!

Entry to the displays is FREE, with a modest charge for our morning and afternoon presentations. This year our theme is: COLOUR.
