The textile objects in these museums belong to different periods and different regions of the country and abroad. The material and types are also of different kinds.

Besides a study of the textiles in the museums mentioned above, a thorough comparison of the textiles, costumes and the styles of attire, has been made with the sculptures, paintings and literature of various periods throughout India and adds significance to Andhra.
