The colour trail

Colours and patterns of the world

The musée du quai Branly’s first textiles exhibition is the opportunity to present the roles played and the positions held by fabrics in the different societies which manufacture them today or which manufactured them in the past.

About the exhibition

The exhibition presents a collection of fabrics of which the pattern is obtained by two successive and combined stages: the creation of "reserves" and the dyeing process.

However, the exhibition does not include other resist-dyeing procedures, such as the ikat or the batik, which have produced a particularly rich collection of textiles which are on display in the musée du quai Branly’s permanent collections.
