A thoughtful friend recently sent me a link to the above video, I'd seen it before and often thought about it since so I loved watching it again. Perhaps you'll enjoy it too.
Andrea Aranow is a textile collector and clothing designer based in New York. Her impressive collection is located in Portland, Oregon and consists of over 40,000 items making it the largest private textile archive in the world!
Read more about Andrea and how this video came to be here.
Edited note: Super excited to find a comment below from Andrea's son Caleb letting us know, "A lot has happened since Aaron made this lovely video nearly three years ago, we've set up the archive in lovely new space and you can see its new incarnation at www.textilehive.com."
It looks amazing!! Check it out!
