One of these events is the Textour on May 28, 29 and 30. A “walking route” allows you to enjoy a palette of textile art and presentations on how the textile industry is becoming ever more sustainable in 13 places in the city. You will find the points on the website of Textilium.

In the end, the apotheosis takes place in 2024. Tilburg will be the stage for a week, where the international textile industry will be showcasing the latest sustainable developments in the making of fabrics.

Of course, soccerball club Willem II is important for the city of Tilburg. This is why the Tilburg soccerball club is hooked up to Textilium Futura and the Textour.

These parties are going to make themselves hard for a more sustainable Willem II.
