Central Museum of Textiles

Textiles were produced in the Lodz region entirely on a domestic basis until the 1820s when the Congress Kingdom of Poland encouraged the building of factories, particularly for the production of woollens and linen. Cotton factories were built from the 1850s, many of them with capital from France and Germany. Several notable mills remain, together with mansions once occupied by mill owners, and some areas of 19th century working class housing.

The Central Museum of Textiles, established in 1960, is one of the most comprehensive of its kind, and includes departments concerned with the history technology and production, as well as with collections of products, of fashion and of folk textiles.
