Since 1983, the Museo Ixchel has published more than 20 monographs on textiles. A subset of these has been jointly funded by the Friends of the Ixchel Museum—works have been either translated into English, or developed as a bi-lingual publication from concept. Publications can generally be ordered directly from the museum. However, the Friends has limited supplies of recent ones which it makes available to its members as a service. Current offerings are listed below and can be ordered via our email firstname.lastname@example.org. Note: prices do not include shipping and handling.
