Welcome to the Spinning Factory!

The Mills building was formerly a cotton-­spinning factory owned by Nan Fung Textiles. The green walls and high windows in The D. H. Chen Foundation Gallery are vestiges of the golden era of Hong Kong’s textile industry. The exhibition Welcome to the Spinning Factory! will provide a brief but intensive history of Hong Kong’s textile industry, featuring rich imageries, vintage cotton products and archival documents and objects. You are also invited to experience the manual cotton-spinning process using traditional spinning instruments, and design and create your own cotton label at the workshop stations in The D. H. Chen Foundation Gallery.
