The collection of the Textile Research Centre, Leiden, contains over 14,000 textiles, garments and accessories such as headgear, footwear, jewellery and walking sticks. It also includes technical items such as hand spinning and weaving equipment. The objects derive from all over world and date from some seven thousand years ago to the present day. The collection was started in 1997 and since then has grown rapidly.
The collection can be searched in a number of different ways, for example, by country, date, technique, as well as by subject category, such as hats, shoes, belts, and so forth.
All of the items in the TRC Collection are now on line, but as with many collections, not every item has (yet) a detailed description and photograph. Every week new information is added to the database by a team of dedicated colleagues.
If you have any serious comments and suggestions please do not hesitate to get in contact with the TRC at email@example.com
The TRC Collection website was built and designed by Joost Kolkman, Coen van der Geest and Marieke Roozeboom, in conjunction with other members of the TRC.
