'All cultural sectors were required to reappraise their content, historic sources and future forms of cultural production. The textile sector was no exception.' -ETN Frans_Sellies_Internet The European Textile Network (ETN) was born out of political changes and cultural challenges in Europe over the course of 1989 and 1990. Beatrijs Sterk, the current secretary, initiated the network in February 1990. The first conference involved 42 participants from 23 different countries and took place just over a year after the network was founded, in June 1991. Appropriately, given the stimulus behind the network, the first conference was held in the town Erfurt in East Germany.
