Textile Hive


The Research Library

The Andrea Aranow Research Library consists of a unique collection of books and rare printed archival materials, collected during Andrea’s lifetime and illuminating her wide range of textile interests. The Research Library project began in late 2022 with the goal to preserve and catalog Andrea’s vast collection of over 500 literary resources, ranging from the late 19th century to the 21st century.

With the project now complete, the physical research library is now housed in our newly established Andrea Aranow Textile Center, headquartered at Textile Hive in Portland, Oregon. This specialized resource provides important insight into Andrea’s deep textile interests covering textiles, fabric, tradition, and fashion, which she collected and referenced throughout her life and career. We are honored to share Andrea’s rich library catalog with you through our website and welcome any feedback.
