During the Linnen Kavels introduction days, potential local partners got acquainted with the initiative and had the opportunity to experience samples of the locally cultivated and woven textile qualities in their own hands, as well as to place pre-orders with a view to the textiles to be woven in September 2022. The introduction to the partnership between Enschede Textielstad and The Linen Project included a presentation giving a comprehensive view into the motivation, scope and principle values of the local linen value chain that the initiative seeks to activate, including the related ecological, textile, and economic processes.

The Linen Project and Enschede Textielstad are grateful for the support, participation and insightful dialogue from local designers, makers and manufacturers, members of the press, and members of their respective wider communities, including the Shared Stewardship community.   

The Linnen Kavels introduction days took place on May 25 2022 at the Iona Stichting in Amsterdam, June 10 2022 at De Horsterhof in Duiven, and July 8-10 2022 at The Linen Project overview exhibition in Arnhem.
