Nearly every culture has tales of power, magic, and creation related to fiber, spinning, threads, weaving, sewing, embroidery, and their products. Related to the lore, is textile imagery illustrating the stories.
I have divided Textile Lore into eight categories:
Greek &/or Roman Mythology
Rhymes & Songs
A great on-line site detailing textile lore is: mythinglinks.org
Other textile production and tool images can be be found in cartoons, in anthropomorphic illustrations of textile tools and notions, and on clothing/accessories/linens.
