The West of England Festival of Textiles 2019 exhibition opens at Bridge House, Stallard Street, Trowbridge, today until Saturday 28th September. Join us on a journey as we explore the fascinating story behind the scenes of Trowbridge’s involvement in cloth production for Marks & Spencer, and iconic ’60s fashion designer Mary Quant. How were new collections created in a fast-paced factory environment? Who bought the cloth and how was it used? What did it take to become a designer in the British weaving industry?
