The city of Norwich, a major textile centre in the 18th century, led the way in the manufacture of shawls based on traditional Indian styles and designs. This text includes background information on the Norwich shawl, placing the garment in the context of contemporary fashion design and the history of the textile industry. For the first time, the collection of Norwich shawls housed at Strangers Hall Museum has been made available for public viewing at "Style and Splendour", The Norwich Shawl Industry 1785-1885 exhibition at the Norwich Castle Museum, 16 September - 26 November 1995.
