Textile Museum Shop: Handmade Home Décor

Apartment Therapy posted a list yesterday of the best museum shops for home décor, and one of them is a good, green source we wanted to highlight on Re-Nest. The Textile Museum in Washington, DC, exhibits handmade contemporary and antique textiles from around the world, and their shop sells everything from Uzbek Suzanis to modern quilts by contemporary artists.

They also carry clothing as well as wall decor, quilts, and tabletop items. Almost everything is handmade — meaning handwoven, hand-dyed, and crafted to exacting standards. Prices are expensive, but the shop is definitely worth a look if you're shopping for unique wall decor or accent pieces. The shop has an online store as well as an in-person location at the museum. Here are a few of our picks.
