Explore the MFA's collection of Islamic textiles from Spain with Evelin Wetter, curator of 11th- to 16th-century textiles at the Abegg Stiftung in Riggisberg, Switzerland. The MFA's collection was formed at the same time that Werner Abegg made his, and the two museums share many fragments from the same textiles. Wetter shares her recent research on these fascinating weavings, which document the spread of Islamic culture and technology onto the European continent.
