We have started
On the way to
The Textilium Futura Year 2024
The (international) textile industry is certainly not a dusty business. And we will show that on this website. Articles and videos about groundbreaking high-tech innovations in the textile world, creative applications of textiles and the sustainability of textile production processes are themes that you can read and hear about on this website in the coming years. If you want to stay informed about the additions to this site, subscribe to our newsletter today.
In addition to the website, TEXTILIUM FUTURA will also be fully visible in the city of Tilburg in the coming years. We are going to organize bigger and smaller events. This can be a vibrant day at the Piushaven for a wide audience with presentations of innovations, art exhibitions, lectures and theater, but also a small event for a small audience around, for example, one specific innovation.
TEXTILIUM FUTURA WEEK
The films, stories and events together tell the story of the textile industry; what this huge industry is headed for and how we will benefit from it in our daily lives. In 2024 the most important and beautiful stories will be brought together during the first International TEXTILIUM FUTURA WEEK. This week, full of bigger and smaller events, spread all over Tilburg, is the highlight of the first TEXTILIUM FUTURA YEAR. In 2024 there will be something to experience in the city every day about the future of the textile industry.
The aim of the Textilium Tilburg Foundation is to put Tilburg permanently back on the international map as a textile city. In addition to the numerous events and the TEXTILIUM FUTURA WEEK, the foundation does this by setting up a knowledge center. Knowledge sharing and transfer is central to the TEXTILIUM FUTURA KNOWLEDGE CENTER (TKC). Local, national and international knowledge in the field of product development is centralized here.
KNOWN TILBURGERS WHO SHARE OUR ENTHUSIASM FOR TEXTILIUM FUTURA
Textilium Futura touches the foundation of our city right in the heart: Creation! The cooperation that can arise between the cultural sector, business and education shows how intertwined we are in Tilburg..

DIRECTOR THEATERS TILBURG
As a stage in the city, Theaters Tilburg also offers space to people who can tell and deepen the story of Tilburg in a theatrical way. And so we like to think along about a gala or a strong performance in the context of Textilium Futura.
Enthusiastic for Textilium Tilburg
Textilium Futura has the potential to make people more aware of the role of textiles in our society. Besides that textile functions as a beautiful product, it also has a lot of influence on us as a person and our environment. Think of the production and the influence that textile has on the person who wears it. I would like to present this ongoing research – together with other artists – in the form of an exhibition. As part of Textilium Futura we can offer a new perspective on textiles!
Textilium Futura embraces the common thread that runs through Tilburg’s past, present and future. The worker mentality mixes with creativity and shows many aspects of the city, which Textilium Futura captures in an event in a cultural and educational way. A cutting edge musical interpretation will also play an important role in this.
STEFAN VAN AARLE
The Ondernemersfonds Binnenstad Tilburg firmly believes in propagating and making Tilburg stories visible. They are present everywhere, hence our approach with nine atmospheric areas. Areas such as the Dwaalgebied and the Spoorzone with their own character. There are also opportunities to tell the story of the city through events. Textilium Futura has the potential to make an important contribution to this. We look forward to the sequel.
