ARCHI'VE OPENED

The records of United Turkey Red Co Ltd, bleachers, finishers and dyers in Alexandria, West Dunbartonshire. (Ref: UGD 013)

 

“Working with original textile samples in the archives has allowed me to gather information that cannot be accessed in any other way. The tactile aspect of the United Turkey Red collection is crucial to my research, and it’s such a pleasure to open the books of fabric samples and see how gorgeous they still are after almost 150 years.”

- Julie Wertz, University of Glasgow Postgraduate Doctoral Researcher
