Started in 1995 and unveiled 13 July 2000.
Originally there were going to be two panels. Textiles with a background of decoupage screening and Industry with engineering drawings and blue prints. They were amalgamated when the final number of sponsors was known. At this stage Kate realised the background was too busy so it was changed to lightweight, more domestic and feminine fabrics at the top, gradually moving to masculine and more industrial fabrics at the bottom.
