Event Details

September 30 – November 7, 2021 · Thursdays thru Sundays 11 a.m. – 4 p.m.

From sheep to wool. From flax to linen. From mulberry to silk.

Until the mid-19th century and the rise of the industrialized textile factory, many Ridgefielders were creating textiles at home; from cultivating raw materials to weaving fabric. The exhibition highlights the production of the three types of textile fibers commonly produced in Ridgefield and the region—linen, wool, and silk—from the field to finished fabric to its use in clothing and decorations.
