“‘Linenopolis’, a new “pop-up” visitor experience and store has opened in Bedford House, in the heart of Belfast’s historic Linen Quarter.
Located opposite the Grand Central Hotel on Bedford Street, it’s the first ever experience on the island of Ireland wholly dedicated to linen – providing both an insight to its social, economic and cultural history and a showcase for the best in contemporary linen brands as part of the first Linen Biennale.
In a nod to the heyday of linen in Belfast, ‘Linenopolis’ includes story boards, images and artefacts highlighting the city’s linen heritage, accompanied by 33 leading linen entrepreneurs including Katie Larmour, Mourne Textiles, Flax Fox, 31 Chapel Lane and Placed Ireland displaying their artisan wares.
Belfast Lord Mayor Councillor Deirdre Hargey officially opened the temporary attraction, which was conceptualised and produced by the Central Business District, with support from the Linen Biennale and Heritage Lottery Fund” - Council press release dated 10 August 2018.
