Dressed for sport at the Textile Museum.

Posted 2017-06-01

Visit Textilmuseet, the Textile Museum, who are our neighbours, and take a look at the development of sports clothing. Come and visit us while you’re around, and see our sports bottles, which have actually become a key accessory and brand showcase for today’s sports fashion.

The exhibitionDressed for sport – from bloomers to MAMILs illustrates the development in the 1900s of specialised sports clothing. It uses clothing, images and film clips to explain function and materials development, fashion, body ideals and morals.

The exhibition is produced in collaboration with Borås Idrottshistoriska Sällskap, Smart Textiles/Textilhögskolan and SISU/Borås.

The exhibition is available from 1 June 2017 to 20 August 2017.
