In the series #madeinthetextiellab we highlight the most innovative, sustainable, or inspiring textile projects that have been developed in the TextielLab over the years, mostly in commission of the TextielMuseum.

The TextielLab is the professional atelier of the TextielMuseum, where designers, artists and fashion designers come to create pioneering new textiles. The Sample Studio showcases the most innovative fabrics produced and is the ideal place to kickstart every new textile creation. In addition to a physical space in the museum, you can also see the Sample Studio online. Here you can discover international textile projects by designers and artists such as Jan Taminiau and Otobong Nkanga that have been made in het TextielLab.
