No clothes without material! The exhibition is devoted to textile raw materials, their production and processing in the clothing industry. Costumes and fabrics from 1800 to the present day illustrate the variety and beauty of textile material, showing their influence on fashion through the ages.

‘MATERIAL MATTERS’ investigates the relationship between material and fashion with the aid of selected items of clothing from the last 200 years. The exhibition questions what influence such factors as specific material characteristics or the availability and pricing of raw materials have on fashion. But social developments and rising prosperity also influence the fashion industry, as do heightened ecological sensitivity and innovations in textile technology, and all these factors change our clothing habits.

One important area within the exhibition is the fibre cabinet. Here, the production and processing of natural and synthetic textile raw materials are examined in detail, from the fibre and the yarn, through to the material itself. Interactive applications, have-a-go stations and games draw in visitors of all ages to explore a complex and fascinating subject. One of the main themes concerns the environmental compatibility of the various materials and processes.

In times of fast fashion, our appreciation of the value of textiles seems to have got lost. The exhibition ‘MATERIAL MATTERS. From Fibre to Fashion’ aims to counteract this by informing visitors about the costly and resource-intensive production processes and by showing them the beauty and variety of textile objects. The exhibition runs from May 15, 2020 up to (and including) January 2021 in the Textilmuseum St. Gallen. The fibre cabinet will remain open for the duration of the exhibition, until year-end 2021.

Thank you

Selected textiles from the latest collections of Swiss textile manufacturers are now on display in the lounge of the Textile Museum. A presentation by SwissTextiles, which is dedicated to textile innovations in the field of medical technology, complements the Vision Spring Summer 2021.

The signals are set on red - understanding sustainability holistically: The latest collections from Swiss textile manufacturers will be on display in the lounge of the Textile Museum from 21 May.  The exhibition "Visions Spring Summer 2021" shows an interpretation of the colour red and its nuances on the subject of "Man and monochrome". At the same time, we will be showing a travelling exhibition by Swiss Textiles on the latest developments in the field of medical technology and the health masks that are so important at the moment. In this way, textiles turn out to be the material of the future. The signals are red because sustainability should be understood holistically. The exhibition will therefore also show the developments and use of textiles for architecture, medicine, sports, and mobility.

The exhibition is dedicated to the eventful history of the textile industry in Eastern Switzerland, which began in the Middle Ages. Ups and downs characterise the sector, which has been strongly export-oriented from the outset and always reacts sensitively to economic, social, political and technological changes. On the basis of selected representatives, various strategies for coping with economic crises are presented. One way of responding to the constantly changing demands of the market is to adapt and diversify the product range as operated by Baerlocher & Co. Other representatives of the textile industry in Eastern Switzerland, some of whom are still active today, prove that specialisation in certain techniques or fields of application can also be promising. In the context of historical and current developments, the different roles of those involved in the production process will also be examined, who are subject to the changing times as well as the entire branch of industry.

In the lounge of the Textile Museum we present a selection of fabrics from the current autumn/winter collections of Swiss textile manufacturers.

Natural shades such as brown and green herald the autumn and glittering fabric combinations in festive colours accompany the winter season. The Swiss textile manufacturers will be showing innovations in lingerie, home textiles, ladies' and men's clothing. The designs range from different embroidery techniques and a variety of fabrics to the use of recycled materials. The colours gold and silver are highlighted in combination with strong colours. The exhibition makes visible the further development in the field of technique, materials and designs. In addition, Swiss Textiles will be showing a presentation on developments in the textile industry.

50 years of voting rights for women in Switzerland: On the occasion of the anniversary, the textile museum presents costumes and accessories from the period from 1600 to the present day that symbolise women's claim to power and female representation of power against a backdrop of changing society, politics and fashion.

The exhibition ‘Robes politiques’ focuses on the public perception of important women, whose appearance on the political stage then and now was and is met not only with applause, but often with criticism (of style), too.

Conceptually, the exhibition is theme-based in approach, without chronological ordering. The clothing of influential women is examined in six chapters from various viewpoints. British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, First Lady Jacky Kennedy, Empress Sissi and the last Empress of France, Eugénie de Montijo, are represented. Swiss politicians such as Elisabeth Kopp, Doris Leuthard and Karin Keller-Sutter also show selected items of clothing from their private collections. 

Fifty textile objects illustrate the tension between femininity and a position of power, between scandal and idealisation, between populism and representation, demonstrating how clothing is deployed for strategic purposes. The specific examples from various centuries and countries reveal continuous elements, developments and changes.

The ball gown attributed to the last Empress of France, Eugénie de Montijo (1826 - 1920) came to the Textile Museum St. Gallen in 1954 with the purchase of a private collection. The dress, made of precious Alençons lace, was completely restored and reassembled in 2020. It will then be on display in the exhibition Robes politiques – Women Power Fashion from March 2021 to the beginning of February 2022.

Have you ever asked how polyester and cotton yarns, which make up most of the material from which our clothes are made, are manufactured? Two animated films currently showing at the exhibition ‘MATERIAL MATTERS. From Fibre to Fashion’ shed light on these complexes processes in an entertaining way.

Fibre Cabinet

In the Fibre Cabinet, the production and processing of natural and artificial textile raw materials from fibre to yarn to fabric are examined in detail. Interactive applications, interactive stations and games invite visitors of all ages to explore a complex and exciting topic. One focus is on questions about the environmental compatibility of the various textile materials.

Looking at the pictures fills us with a sense of quiet melancholy. For us, it was both a great pleasure and an honour to be able to present the costumes of the Circus Knie on the occasion of its centenary. We continue to wish the Knie family of artistes all the best for the future.

No clothes without material! The exhibition is devoted to textile raw materials, their production and processing in the clothing industry. Costumes and fabrics from 1800 to the present day illustrate the variety and beauty of textile material, showing their influence on fashion through the ages.

‘MATERIAL MATTERS’ investigates the relationship between material and fashion with the aid of selected items of clothing from the last 200 years. The exhibition questions what influence such factors as specific material characteristics or the availability and pricing of raw materials have on fashion. But social developments and rising prosperity also influence the fashion industry, as do heightened ecological sensitivity and innovations in textile technology, and all these factors change our clothing habits.

One important area within the exhibition is the fibre cabinet. Here, the production and processing of natural and synthetic textile raw materials are examined in detail, from the fibre and the yarn, through to the material itself. Interactive applications, have-a-go stations and games draw in visitors of all ages to explore a complex and fascinating subject. One of the main themes concerns the environmental compatibility of the various materials and processes.

In times of fast fashion, our appreciation of the value of textiles seems to have got lost. The exhibition ‘MATERIAL MATTERS. From Fibre to Fashion’ aims to counteract this by informing visitors about the costly and resource-intensive production processes and by showing them the beauty and variety of textile objects. The exhibition runs from May 15, 2020 up to (and including) January 2021 in the Textilmuseum St. Gallen. The fibre cabinet will remain open for the duration of the exhibition, until year-end 2021.
