DeKalb Traveler: African Textile Museum

May 23, 2024 11:00 AM

Join fellow DeKalb History Center Members exploring the African Textile Museum in Stonecrest!

Newly opened, the African textile Museum features textiles from all over the African continent. Learn and see textiles made from sustainable materials such as bark, coconut, and cotton. The African Textile Museum is dedicated to revealing ‘fashion’ as one of civilization’s oldest art forms and that many of the techniques employed in today’s worldwide fashion industry originated in Africa. Preserving the creative processes, presenting, and sharing the knowledge as widely as possible and building on that cultural history as we move boldly into the future is the mission.

See fashions from Cameroon, South Africa, Nigeria, and more.

This event is for DeKalb History Center Members only.

You must provide your own transportation.
