MAK Collection

Textiles and Carpets Collection

Curator: Silke Geppert
The holdings of the MAK’s collection of textiles, which is one of the foremost textile collections in the world, cover the time from Late Antiquity until today; they encompass the globe with works from nearly all parts of Asia and Europe, and even South America. The collection is a comprehensive material archive reflecting the artistic, technical, and economic developments of this special field throughout the last 1,500 years. This richness of the material archive gives it a unique capability of illustrating the multifaceted, international cultural interconnections that have developed over the centuries.
