    Until the 1960s, Tilburg was the textile capital of the Netherlands.

    Look at the various ways and the different types and style of machinery used to make fabric through the years. Many are still working today and being demonstrated on how they work.

    Tilburg: textielmuseum

    After the Industrial Revolution Tilburg became one of the most industrialised cities of the Netherlands. Most factories produced cloth. Most of these factories have gone out of business long ago, but the old Mutsaers factory remains as a working museum about this important part of Tilburg's history. Some of the sheets made here have ended up in royal palaces, so they must be good.

    In the future his museum will be extended with a new wing that covers the history of Tilburg itself.

    Inside the Textile Museum is a gift shop and an exhibit of American Quilt Art. It was interesting to see these handmade quilts from the US while I was visiting another country.
