Tong Tong Festival highlights the history of the Dutch East India Company from various perspectives. In the context of this festival, Tong Tong has invited Textiel Factorij to give a presentation on the 1st of June on the mutual heritage of India and the Netherlands and the influence of textiles during the 17th and 18th century. The Dutch East India Company imported chintz from India which became very fashionable in Holland. First among the rich, then slowly it trickled into the traditional costumes of various regions in the Netherlands.
