Inspiration / how this work links to the exhibition's theme (no more than 50 words).

It is part of a bouquet that tells the story of how the Leiden Cloth in ‘De Lakenhal’ was made in the 17th – 19th century by many different craftsmen (children as well) starting off with the dirty merino fleece and at the end of the process controlled by ‘de Staalmeesters’.   -
