The Clothing and Textiles Division of the Museum of Texas Tech University comprises over 26,000 objects. Its purpose is to provide examples of design for study and research. Of particular focus are items designed, made or used by tastemakers of all socio-economic levels in Texas and the Southwest as well as items that typically would have been used by tastemakers. Objects are collected for their artistic and historical value.
