Linen has profoundly influenced the wealth of our nation, the geography of our country and our relationship within Europe. Our chosen Linen Stories tell tales of economic migrancy, industrial espionage, trade routes and transfers of technology, highlighting the development and demise of this once vital Scottish industry and our links both helpful and rivalrous with Ireland and Holland.
European Unions is developed with the kind support of Vanessa Habib, textile historian and Chris Fleet, National Library Scotland.
We tell more linen stories in chapters added as our tour progresses.
