A trip of 2 days, and we have vistited 3 coutries, first Belgium, the next stop was the Netherlands and then Germany. We visited textile companies, trend-bureaus and a museum. There was a lot to see on those two days.
One of the companies that we have visited was Vlisco. They produce african fabrics with batik-techniques and printings. It was amazing to see the production-proces, I’m always amazed by the fact that machines can produce beautiful fabrics. Oh, and they had this grand archive where I could spend hours and hours. It was filled with fabrics, old stamps, colours, … .
I found some little samples on the ground in the factory, and I took them home with me, as a souvernir. Like I found the feather and the Ginkgo-leave on the ground in Cologne yesterday. I also have a new collection of postcards, I bought them at “Ludwig museum” in Cologne.
It was a lovely little trip. Soon more pictures.
Happy weekend !
