A digital dictionary and term base

The website, textilnet.dk, is a digital dictionary and term base of contemporary and historical terms relating to textiles and clothing as well as the manufacturing techniques associated with these crafts.

The idea for the dictionary emerged in a professional network of Danish textile researchers, Dragtpuljen. Behind the project is a working group of textile researchers including staff from:

  • The National Museum of Denmark
  • Designmuseum Danmark
  • The Danish National Research Foundation's (DNRF's) Centre for Textile Research at the University of Copenhagen
  • Den Gamle By (The Old Town, the National Open-Air Museum of Urban History, Århus)

The project’s work on the dictionary takes place in Den Gamle By, which also hosts the website.
