The Costume & Textile Association is an independent charity seeking to promote the unique costume and textile collection of the Norfolk Museums Service.
The 'Fine City' of Norwich has a long and rich heritage. It owes much to the textile industry which brought wealth to the city between the twelfth and eighteenth centuries.
The legacy can still be enjoyed today: Norwich is still enriched by the different styles, culture, architecture and language that can be traced back to the ‘Strangers’ who came from the Low Countries to work in the textile industry.
The Costume and Textile Association (C&TA) is a lively organisation bringing together people who are keen to support and learn more about the history and development of costume and textiles.

The C&TA works to raise money for the museums service, but is independent of it.
Over the last three decades Costume and Textile Association members have contributed more than £100,000 to enable the Norfolk Museums Service to extend and improve its costume and textile collection.
