Established in 1962, The Textile Museum Journal emerged as a leading publication for scholarship on textiles from Asian, African, and indigenous American cultures. For over forty years, its articles on a range of cultural, technical, historical, and aesthetic topics made significant contributions to the field, including pioneering research on pre-Hispanic Peruvian, Islamic, and Southeast Asian textiles. 

This fall, the journal will resume annual publication with an exciting new issue featuring scholarship on Mamluk carpets purchased by Pope Innocent VIII (1484–92), late Antique palmette silks, the development of carpet studies in nineteenth-century Europe, and more. The journal’s publication is made possible thanks to a Founding Patron gift from the Markarian Foundation. 

Submissions based on original, scholarly research are accepted on a rolling basis. For guidelines please visit our website, or contact For more on how to access the journal through subscription, please see our webpage at The University of Texas Press
