Database of Coptic Textiles

The Department of Anthropology at the California Academy of Sciences offers this unique site has short introductions (with images) to Coptic weaving techniques and textiles, and a searchable photographic database of all 81 Coptic textiles in its Rietz collection; to my knowledge, no online resource of similar scope exists for this important form of Late Antique art.
