In the past year, we have been working hard on developing an online library catalog for the Textile Museum library.

The aim is create better access for students and scholars whose research may benefit from the library's 3000 plus books. Thanks to many of our donors, we have made a lot of progress. The website is now up and running. More work needs to be done to standardize the entries, cleaning up data, and scanning book covers. A student intern from the Ciputra University in Surabaya is currently helping us in this project.

“Royal Attire and Civilization in the Palace of Yogyakarta”
March 9-10, 2020
The conference is sponsored by the Royal Palace of Yogyakarta to commemorate the coronation anniversary of Sri Sultan Hamengku Buwono X. This wonderful initiative to explore the Javanese court culture brought together 20 scholars from different disciplines, and was attended by more than 100 people.
The program is divided into 4 sections: history, philology, performing art and socio-culture. The Tracing Patterns Foundation's president, Dr. Sandra Sardjono was invited as a guest speaker to open the history section with a lecture, Depictions of Textiles in Ancient Java.
