Textiles today

Quated from the site "Archaeological Textiles Newsletter is a twice-yearly publication for textiles (June and December), which have been found in archaeological contexts, dating from the prehistoric to the modern age. "


From the web site "Welcome to Stringpage! I (Sarah Goslee, widely known as Phiala) have been teaching fiber arts in person since 1992, and online since about 1996. This website now features how-to information, photographs and resource lists for a wide variety of textile techniques. My specialty is historical textile techniques, especially those like braiding and tablet weaving that can produce very complicated structures with minimal equipment. I'm also interested in popularizing obscure techniques like sprang and naalbinding."


Centre International d'Etude des Textiles Anciens  From their web page "The CIETA is an international association founded in 1954 in order to coordinate work methods used by specialists in ancient textiles.
Its base is in Lyon, France. Two official languages are used: French and English.
