Textil(e)

An entire exhibition on textiles! Clothes from past and present, socks, ties, tiny little children’s shoes and huge men’s boots. Fashions and trends, attractive and ugly, techniques, materials and fabric care.

Knowledge about textiles has been essential to human survival down the ages – as protection from the heat and the cold, as a sign of status and as a commodity. This packed exhibition, displaying treasures from our collections, brings this knowledge to the fore while at the same time seeking to increase awareness about modern day textile products and production.
