Our Linen Stories
This exhibition and events series celebrating contemporary design in flax fibre and linen, and Scotland’s extraordinary relationship with this quintessentially European textile. After two years of touring, drawing on a rich trade and industrial heritage, the programme also highlights Scotland’s leading role in designing a sustainable circular economy.
More than paisley, tweed and tartan, it is flax fibre and linen that are pivotal to the nation’s story. This exhibition draws on two years of participatory research across Scotland and our nearest linen neighbours.
Our Linen Stories, Mon 16 Sept 2019 to Sat 25 Jan 2020, Dovecot Studios, Edinburgh. Mon-Fri noon-3pm & Sat 10.30am-5pm. Free admission.
