As we toured the Our Linen Stories exhibition, it became clear that there are lots of elements that make up the ecology of design. This section of the exhibition celebrates some of the ways in which we can support designers to generate interest and income for their local communities.
For example this can be done by introducing young children to a new technique for the first time, or supporting established designers who are forging a career for themselves. There are many ways that we can nurture design in the linen industry, and enhance local communities in the process.
Celebrating the importance of photography and journalism on design and the linen industry. For our exhibition we have included some international and local Scottish magazines and journals.
