The town of Delft has a long history of pottery manufacture, stretching back to the 17th century. During this time, Delft was renowned for its blue and white pottery, which was highly sought after by the Dutch elite. It was created in imitation of Chinese porcelain and was thus in the Chinoiserie style. This style of pottery is still produced today, although the techniques used to create it have evolved over time. In the modern era, Delft pottery is still produced in the town, with a variety of styles and colors available. The town is also home to several museums that showcase the history of pottery manufacture in Delft, as well as the traditional techniques used to create the iconic blue and white pottery.
