The Historic Clothing and Textile Collection’s mission is to be a valuable platform for outreach, experiential learning, teaching, research, inclusivity, and inspiration at the University of Georgia. Our goal is to allow for further knowledge of the state of Georgia’s regional history inside and outside of the classroom while providing important examples of structural design elements and notable designers.
The Historic Clothing and Textile Collection (HCTC) in the Department of Textiles, Merchandising, and Interiors consists of around 3,000 garments, accessories, and textiles that date from the 1800s to the present day.
