Established in 1962, The Textile Museum Journal is the leading publication for the exchange of textile scholarship in North America. The peer-reviewed journal promotes high-quality research on the cultural, technical, historical, and aesthetic significance of textiles from Asian, African, and indigenous American cultures. Last issued in 2004, the journal resumed annual publication in an online format in 2017, thanks to a Founding Patron gift from the Markarian Foundation.
