The Linen Project at Museum Arnhem

On display in de Koepel, part of State of Fashion.

May 22 – June 17, 2024

We warmly invite you to the opening gathering on Sunday, May 26, 14:00 – 17:00.

How can we cultivate flax and linen sustainably and locally to build a new linen chain? Since 2018, The Linen Project has been trying to answer this question. The fashion industry mainly focuses on profit-making, leading to an increase in the production of cheap, low-quality products often made under poor working conditions. This has a significant impact on our environment. With The Linen Project, we explore how to make flax and linen sustainable and economically viable locally. We do this together, following the principle of ‘learning by doing’.

The exhibition is free to enter.

Featuring works by stewards: Catharina Van Eetvelde, Heleen Klopper, Jan Peter Scheen, Karin Wijnen, Loes Schepens, Maaike Gottschal, Hans Hutting, Ellen Rooijakkers, Marieke van Mieghem, Kelly Konings, Rob Velker.
