Through 2023, Eldon House celebrates a “year of fashion” through its exhibitions and programming. This exhibit features the component pieces that support fashion, including fabric swatches, lace, embroidery, beadwork, and thread. The textiles on display are from the Eldon House collection including many hand-made embellishments attributed to the Harris Family as well as exotic fabrics brought back from their international travels.
