The Department of Fiber Science & Apparel Design (FSAD) actively engages with the public via exhibitions from the Cornell Costume and Textile Collection, a high school design competition, and a natural dye garden. We also offer resources for consumers and youth educators on an array of topics related to understanding, use, and care of textile fibers and clothing.
