Heading upstairs you’ll see the transition from conventional textiles to modern industries. Most of which started with the development of sewing machines (hand-powered and automatic) that developed in the 1800s and 1900s. The production of natural fibers like silk, linen, and cotton was developed and advanced through machines like the drawing frame.
On the 4th floor, the first piece of fashion you’ll see is a 3D print dress. I’m not sure if it’s on the market or if it’s just a prototype. Nonetheless, it’s still pretty cool. Future developments in textiles will enhance three major areas: outdoor activities, combat, and disaster protection/prevention.
The Daegu Textile Museum is located in Dong-gu on the way to Palgong Mountain. There are many other attractions around such as Bongmu Park, Bullo-dong Ancient Tombs Park, and some caves dug during the Japanese colonization. If you’re into fashion history, curious about the future of fashion, or just plain enjoy museums in general, then I recommend checking this place out.
