I have just received the latest Friends' mailing from the British Museum and see that there are a couple of exhibits - probably quite small - which are in Room 2 until 11 September 2011 and include textiles:

Adornment and identity: Jewellery and costume from Oman
21 January – 11 September 2011
Room 2, Free
Quote:
"The display includes bracelets, anklets, necklaces, earrings, hair ornaments, kohl pots, and men’s accessories. The jewellery is decorated with coins, coral and glass beads, and gold leaf decoration, with many amuletic pieces incorporating elaborate Qur’an cases. Also featured are colourful embroidered costumes, including children’s outfits, from different regions of Oman."

AND

Traditional jewellery and dress from the Balkans
21 January – 11 September 2011
Room 2, Free
Quote:
This display complements the silver jewellery from Oman on display in Room 2 by looking at European societies where dress and jewellery play a similar role, as indicators of identity and protection for the wearer.


Click the title links to the two exhibits to find out more information from the British Museum website.

I certainly hope to get to see them before they close in September.
