We seek to preserve, advance, and spread knowledge and appreciation of textile arts by:
- Cultivating an international collective of textile experts and enthusiasts to promote historical and scientific research of textile materials and techniques;
- Partnering with institutions, scholars and conservators to realize textile lectures, workshops, exhibitions, and conservation projects;
- Collaborating with regional and national organizations to support indigenous textile revivals and environmentally-ethically conscious approaches to textile production;
- Providing, where appropriate, training and funding assistance to individuals, groups, and other institutions supporting the research and conservation of textile arts worldwide.
