The Textile Museum Shop is ready for the holiday season, and is the perfect place to buy one-of-a-kind gifts.
Voted one of the best museum shops in Washington, D.C. by both Frommer’s and Apartment Therapy, the shop carries beautiful gifts in every price range, from embroidered bags, to silk scarves, to unique housewares. For the indecisive, gift certificates are also available.
In keeping with the current exhibition The Sultan’s Garden: The Blossoming of Ottoman Art, visitors will find plenty of floral patterns and handmade items from Turkey and its surrounding countries. The catalog for that exhibition is also available for sale, and makes an excellent gift for any textile enthusiast.
One of the shop’s most popular annual events, The Member VIP Shopping Weekend, will be December 7-9. Members get a 25% discount on all purchases (members receive a 10% discount the rest of the year) both in the shop and online.
The shop is open to the public during regular museum hours (Tuesday through Saturday, 10 a.m.-5 p.m., Sunday 1-5 p.m.) as well as during after-hours programs such as special lectures and events. And The Textile Museum Shop is open 24/7 on the web at textilemuseumshop.org.
Proceeds from shop sales support the museum and allow it to continue its mission to expand public knowledge and appreciation – locally, nationally, and internationally – of the artistic merits and cultural importance of the world’s textiles.
