Tapestry Brings Rich Textile Collection Online Introduced by Philadelphia University in 2012, Tapestry is an innovative online resource that catalogs thousands of historic fabric swatches from The Design Center at Philadelphia University’s vast textile collection. Funded with generous support from The Barra Foundation, Tapestry allows users to examine centuries-old textiles and search through the catalogue easily to find any style of pattern. The high-resolution scans can be viewed from any smartphone, tablet or personal computer, and have already been used by fashion designers in the industry to vibrant new apparel. The Design Center at Philadelphia University houses over 200,000 items that reflect a broad spectrum of techniques, designs, cultures and historic periods. Tapestry can be viewed at wordpress.philau.edu/ textilecollection.
