The Textile Museum Shop has been recognized as one of the top ten museum shops in the Washington, DC region by Frommer’s Tour Guides and as one of the top ten best nationally by the popular design-focused blog Apartment Therapy. Frommer’s review lauded the “high-end, museum-quality merchandise” available in the shop, which sells everything from “tapestries, quilts, pillow covers, placemats, jackets, jewelry, scarves, hand-painted silk ties, knitted hats created by local and internationally-known fiber artists and craftsmen as well as stylish stationery and postcards.” Apartment Therapy coined the shop a “DC find,” and a resource for international handmade goods such as the Tibetan pillow they featured on their website. With Colors of the Oasis: Central Asian Ikats opening in mid-October, look forward to new merchandise arriving in the museum shop next month. Ikat-inspired items include bright bangles, handpainted silk jackets and the release of the groundbreaking exhibition catalog.
