Ivanovo is considered to be the textile capital of Russia from old times, before the Soviets built several large textile manufacturing plants. Chintz manufacturing industry was rapidly developing here since the beginning of the XIX century and was innovative at that times, early making a move from textile manufacture to machine production. In the Museum of Ivanovo Chintz you can find out how this happened and look at tissue samples of different decades and at clothes that are made out of them. The museum is housing various exhibitions devoted to the production of chintz, dense, but light cotton fabric. This fabric was widespread before the Soviet Revolution, and Ivanovo was the center of its production. The museum tells about the development of the textile industry in the Ivanovo region from ancient times to the present day. There is a unique collection of tissue collected from the end of the XIX century. Particular attention is given to show textile products as work of decorative art.
