You may have actually visited the TRC in Leiden, its exhibitions, workshops or lectures, or you may only have had the chance to consult the TRC website, its online digital catalogue of more than 23000 textile items from all over the world and from all ages, or its TRC Needles online encyclopaedia of needlework. Or you may know about the TRC from its national and international publications.

But all the work behind the scenes to realise these activities, all of them carried out by dedicated group of volunteers, still requires basic funding. In order to provide the means for the TRC to continue and expand its work, we would like to ask all its supporters and all of those who have enjoyed one or more of the many and varied TRC activities to make a donation.

Our bank account number is NL39 INGB 000298 2359, Textile Research Centre Leiden. Our BIC/SWIFT code, for donations from abroad, is: INGB NL2A. Dutch donors should realise that the TRC is a cultural ANBI (no. 804514070) and donations are therefore tax-deductible with a special rate.
