WATCH NOW: Tools of the Trade Presentation

In case you missed it earlier this month, you can now watch the recording of Tools of the Trade: Women and Textiles in the 19th Century. The presentation, led by Jade Papa, curator of the Textile and Costume Collection and adjunct faculty member, and Emily Radomski, third-year Textile Design student and Collection intern, covered the history of women’s roles in Philadelphia’s textile industries in the 19th century.

The presentation was part of The Library Company’s month-long celebration — Power & Pomp: Fashion History Month. Check out The Library Company’s website to learn about additional events.
