Interesting textile factory combined with a well organized meeting centre. Furthermore it combines the history of industrial textile production with innovative techniques on textile production and modern design (or even textile art)

Nice place to see the traditional and modern equipment working . May need to ask a staff to show how the old machines work. There are a few videos and exhibitions of clothes through the ages.

One of my favourites is the old factory part where machines are still roaring. Fun to do with kids on a Sunday when there are volunteers available to help knit on a machine and to explain how the old machines work. Impressive steem machine is...More
