A piece of history

The history of Aalst is inextricably linked to the textile industry. In the 19th century, many people from Aalst were employed in spinning mills, twining mills and weaving mills. In and around these factories the story of Daens took place. When a number of Aalst spinning mills and twining mills merged, the FFR, Filature et Filteries Réunies came into being. The factories were responsible for the production of sewing thread. At the end of the 20th century the production units of the FFR were dismantled. One of the buildings was renovated with respect for the industrial history of the old factory buildings and this is how De Filature came into being.
