Textiles and Health in Historical Perspective

At this challenging time Textile History has collated key research published in the journal exploring past relationships between textiles and health. Topics discussed in the collection include: occupational diseases of garment workers; economics vs preservation of life in a threatened textile industry; a European sericulture pandemic; the uses and meaning of needlework in times of (inter)national strife; and the community-building potential of textile practices and projects.

Please enjoy this collection, free-access, through September 30, 2020.
