Who We Are
The Baxter Mill Archive is a collection of over 500,000 antique fabric swatches, hand-painted artwork, and books. The antique documents have come to us from all four corners of the world, many dating back to the early 1800s. In March of 2017, we acquired the Ilene Danchig Documentary Textile Collection based in New York City, adding over 100,000 diverse pieces to our design library. This addition makes the Baxter Mill Archive one of the most expansive, unique, and invaluable textile and art archives in the world.
For years, our in-house designers have been utilizing the Baxter Mill Archive every day to support internal creative needs. Now we invite designers and businesses of all industries to unlock the archive’s history and centuries of design for inspiration to suite their design styles and projects.
