This online exhibition at The Textile Museum (Washington, DC), Flowers of Silk and Gold: Four Centuries of Ottoman Embroidery, celebrates the 75th anniversary of the museum's founding. The exhibit features textiles dating from the late 17th century to the 20th century and "explore[s] how these embroidered textiles reflect the social changes taking place in Ottoman society." The ten featured textiles are integrated with information on Ottoman Culture and a Teacher Source section for middle and high school students. This latter section includes additional background information, lesson plans, and a list of resources for further study. In addition to information about exhibitions and the museum's history, The Textile Museum's Website has a section on the Care & Display of textiles which contains links to four informative pamphlets developed by the Conservation department. The online pamphlets provide general guidelines for the care of textiles, as well as information on storing Oriental carpets, hanging systems for textiles, and dealing with pests.
