The Museum of Printed Fabrics in Mulhouse has one of the world’s largest collections of printed fabrics.
This collection retraces the technical and artistic history of calico printing in Alsace, as well as fabrics from India, Japan, Indonesia, Africa and elsewhere. Bedspreads, garments, scarves and shawls trace the history of decorative fabrics for furniture and fashion from the 18th century to the present day. It was in 1833 that industrialists in Mulhouse decided to put together a textile collection to serve as inspiration for manufacturers and their designers. Today, designers, stylists and big names in interior design still look to the museum’s motifs for inspiration.
