The MAK Collection is home to around 500 high-quality British Arts-and-Crafts textiles, including designs by William Morris
and Charles F. A. Voysey. These holdings were studied according to scientific criteria. Additionally, scholarly attention
was paid to these textiles role as forerunners of Austrian Jugendstil fabrics. The information gleaned was entered into
the database and is to be put online as part of the textiles database of MAK Collection online.
