The Newberry Collection of Islamic Embroideries forms part of a much larger group of medieval textiles that were collected in Egypt in the early twentieth century by the Egyptologist, Percy E. Newberry. The textiles were donated to the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford in 1941.

The group includes 1010 embroideries. All of the more than two thousand textiles are published online by the Yousef Jameel Centre for Islamic and Asian Art and are housed in the Ashmolean Museum.
