Meet Sumru Belger Krody!
Few people know more about late antique, Middle Eastern, and Islamic textiles than Sumru Belger Krody, our senior curator of Eastern Hemisphere Collections. Originally from Izmir, Turkey, Sumru recently celebrated her twenty-year anniversary as part of The Textile Museum’s staff. As the museum prepares to reopen on GW’s Foggy Bottom campus, Sumru looks forward to future collaborative research that will add to the scholarship on textile arts. While textiles are her specialty, Sumru also enjoys sewing and working on arts and crafts projects with her daughter.
