Subtypes Guilds - 'Trades' - The Netherlands and Belgium

‘Trades’ in the Low Countries existed in cities with a large textile industry. In these towns, a board of entrepreneurs and representatives from the urban government administrated the ‘trades’. These organizations could also inspect the quality of the manufactured products, e.g. in Delft (Lis and Soly 2006b, 116), or set regulations for apprenticeship – as they did in Leiden (Davids 2007, 71).
