Textile education


This collection will tell you about textile education in the Netherlands. Learn about this mandatory subject that was implemented into the education system (first only for girls) from 1878 till 1973. Feast your eyes upon several examples of textile made by children from 8 years and up. Perhaps seeing these old works will cause you to remember your own youth with nostalgic pleasure. For the teacher amongst us we also have old education material used to give the same classes that made these beautiful works.

Enjoy a piece of textile history, preserved for all times.
