Huddersfield's textile heritage is alive and furnishing the homes of the stars, as shown by the new exhibition at the Tolson Museum, Huddersfield.

Woven I opens in April 7 and runs until June 18, with carpet made for Liam Gallagher's home, tartan material ordered by Elton John, fabric incorporating 22-carat gold thread which was made for Frank Sinatra, and material used to make a suit worn by Pierce Brosnan in the James Bond movie Golden Eye join Madonna's rug.

The exhibition also has pattern books and working designs including the current designs for football club carpets made for Leeds United, Sheffield Wednesday, Newcastle United, Manchester City, Arsenal and Chelsea.

Woven II involves second year students on a new textile craft course at Huddersfield University, and their work will go on display on May 13 as part of Museums and Galleries Month.
