Jade Papa, curator of the Textile and Costume Collection and adjust faculty member, and Emily Radomski, third-year Textile Design student and Collection intern, will present on the history of women’s roles in Philadelphia’s textile industries in the 19th century.
After a presentation led by Jade, Emily will showcase tools from the Textile and Costume Collection that were actually used by some of these textile workers and explain their functions.
An exhibit will be on display in The Library Company’s Logan Room for the remainder of the month-long celebration — Power & Pomp: Fashion History Month.
