The Fabric of Democracy Exhibition

Our presence at the Fashion and Textile Museum couldn't have come at a more opportune time. The museum's latest exhibition, "The Fabric of Democracy: Propaganda Textiles from the French Revolution to Brexit," curated by design historian Amber Butchart, explores the powerful intersection of politics and textiles. This thought-provoking exhibition takes you on a journey through more than two centuries of printed propaganda textiles, highlighting how fabric designers and manufacturers responded to political upheaval.

Discover how fabrics became a medium of political expression, not only in public spaces but also in the everyday lives of people. From wartime slogans to revolutionary ideals, fabrics have been used to convey powerful messages. The exhibition delves into sensitive themes, including war, conflict, anti-Semitism, fascism, and colonialism, offering a deep understanding of the historical context of these textiles. Read more about the exhibition here.
