Excerpt from The Edinburgh Encyclopedia, Vol. 5 of 18
Bruges has various manufactures of broad says, serges, baize, and other woollen stuffs; also dimi. Ties, camlets, and fine linens,-which last are equal to those of Holland, and are sold in a market held every week under th... e arcades of the Hotel de Ville. Its laces pass for those of Mechlin, and are sold at the same price. Besides its manufactures, Bruges exports a considerable quantity of corn, and all kinds of seeds proper for making oil, particularly oolzat. Its imports are nearly the same with the other cities of Flanders and Brabant.
