The Museum has a large collection of Anatolian and Central Asian rugs, and a group of 17th century Caucasian dragon carpets and fragments that is perhaps the best collection in the world outside of Turkey. The Museum has some of the world's finest early Islamic textiles, including tiraz, and Coptic textiles. In addition, The Museum has significant holdings of Indian, Southeast Asian, Central Asian, Persian, Turkish, and Greek textiles. Although smaller in number, the collection also includes textiles from China, Japan, and Africa. The Museum also has extraordinary holdings of pre-Hispanic Peruvian textiles - styles that are particularly well represented include Ocucaje, Nasca, Huari, Chimu, Chancay, and Inca. In addition the collection includes extensive holdings of textiles in the modern traditions that descend from pre-Hispanic origins, including those of Guatemala and Mexico, as well as the Andean countries of Ecuador, Peru, and Bolivia. The Museum also has a large collection of molas from Kuna Yala in Panama.
