Textiles are in our blood. The home weavers of Mierlo and the manufacturers in Geldrop ensured that the most beautiful fabrics were altered and woven all those years ago.

Curious to find out more about our rich history in the textile industry? 

Even before the year 1700 the ‘lakennijverheid’ (broadcloth industry) flourished in Geldrop. Even so, the textile industry only started booming in the year 1850. The great factories, chimneys and labourer and stately homes were built in this period.
