more general information

Textile is everywhere and of all times. For centuries, people of all cultures have spun, woven, tufted, embroidered, made bobbin lace, sewn and knitted. Discover how textile is made in the brand-new exhibition ‘100% Textile’. From cotton to towel. With humming spinning machines, roaring looms and rattling sewing machines. 

Did you know that coffee pads, tyres and artificial grass are made from textile as well?

Nevertheless, the textile industry is facing challenges too. What does textile mean for workers in low-wage countries? Can a circular economy limit the climate impact of ‘fast fashion’? Immerse yourself in a story that offers quite some food for thought!
