Welcome to the International Textile Collection (formerly ULITA)
We are now part of Special Collections and Galleries, Leeds University Library. This website will be reduced in content in the coming months.
The Collection is still housed in St Wilfred’s Chapel on the Western Campus of the University of Leeds.
We currently don’t have an exhibition, but are open for research visits by appointment.
It looks like our catalogue is working again! Let us know if you experience any access difficulties.
From 2019, we will share news, exhibition and events information through Leeds University Library Galleries’ monthly newsletter. If you would like to keep receiving updates from us please sign up to the Leeds University Library Galleries mailing list.
