Texture tells the story of the linen and flax industry. It is a story with extremely strong roots that bear witness to tough skill and entrepreneurship, of daring innovation and adaptability and of continual self-reinvention. In three rooms, set up as an authentic flax depot (1912), visitors can find out about the revolutionary development caused by a flax industry in this region. Visitors will not only be surprised by the historical accounts, but also be amazed and inspired by stories of the present and the future.

Flanders has for centuries been famous for all in its textile production and linen has played a key role! In former times, luxury products such as lace and damask were extremely popular among the aristocracy and bourgeoisie. The basic linen that was woven here on a massive scale was intended for daily use. Along the banks of the river Leie a flax processing industry grew up which conquered the world. ‘Courtrai flax’ is still a top quality product that is known and sought after internationally.

Three rooms, three stories
You use flax every day without knowing it and in unexpected locations. Designers, scientists and entrepreneurs make maximum use of it. Discover, taste, feel and test their products in the Wonder Room.

The Leie Room tells the story of the flax and linen industry. It is a story of highs and lows, people who, without any outside help, continually found the resilience to survive serious crises. It is a fascinating story of thinkers who dared to do.

Under the golden crown is the Treasure Room. This is the place to marvel at the beautiful damasks, laces, handwork and fine fabrics that enrich this exceptional textile collection.
