The Los Angeles County Museum of Art is a complex of buildings along Wilshire Boulevard in Los Angeles, California. It was established in 1910 as part of the Museum of Science, History and Art in the park of the University of Southern California. The current museum houses some 150,000 objects, dating from prehistory to the present-day.

The textiles and garments collection includes more than 20,000 objects (2016), including European Renaissance and European and American textiles and accessories. There are also sub-collections of Islamic, South and Southeast Asian, and Asian material, including two major Iranian sixteenth-century carpets—the Ardabil and the Coronation.
