You can always tell the quality of a museum by its shop and café.......Discuss?
The joys or not of the obvious commercial spaces of a museum. Often the last port of call in any visit and the one that can leave the most pertinent memory. The space in the Textiel Museum is beautifully laid out and as with the rest of the museum is to a high quality specification in display. The pieces for sale reflect what one has seen within the rest of the museum. Here is your opportunity to buy the Viktor & Rolf designed jacquard dishcloth with graffiti splurge or a table cloth designed by Droog. This was interspersed with a strong collection of jewellery made by Nederlands designers, felt and wool pieces and I even found a Margo Selby scarf. The space and the staff were all very welcoming and there were pieces for all price points. Good thing that I came with a full suitcase... lots of lovely new books I would have liked and some gorgeous textiles.
