Textile Industry & Consumer Products

The Dutch mill-made textile industry on larger scale, finds its roots in the early 19th century, when strongly pushed by the king-entrepreneur Willem II. At that time large industry centre were created in the east part of the Netherlands for cotton materials and in the south part for woolen materials. Together with this development the creation of all kinds of educational institutes took place, from worker until management level, from yarn spinning until the fashionable garment development and everything in between. Investment in education, creation, product development, quality and knowhow has always been the backbone of the Dutch textile industry and trade…. and still is.

As a result our 70 enthusiastic PUM-experts can’t offer much direct technical production expertise. We are however still able to instruct, teach and help people all over the world about the creation of practical and actual, fashionable products.
