From 11 March until 10 September 2017 the Museum of Friesland in Leeuwarden presents a major exhibition of its extensive and well-preserved collection of chintz, the shiny, floral, hand-painted cotton from India that conquered 16th-century Europe. The beautiful patterns feel familiar while at the same time convey a special story. Objects displayed range from skirts, jackets, sun hats and regional clothing to wall hangings and blankets. The exhibition Chintz, cotton in bloom takes the visitor on a journey from India to Hindeloopen, Indonesia and Japan.
