Það sem verður gert

Tour London's only working cloth mill with the owner

We'll meet at my private working mill museum in the beautiful Epping Forest for an in-depth tour of weaving process and history. We'll start with tea, then walk through the mill to learn about all the equipment and how it works. We'll talk about the history of mechanized weaving from the 1830s to present, learning about different kinds of power looms and how they developed. You'll examine a variety of natural yarns and fibers, including wool, linen, and cotton, learn about warp and weft preparation and about cloth finishing techniques. We'll also address sustainability issues, the history of this particular mill, and anything else you're curious about.

I started building this mill in 2011 with one loom. Now we have about 40 tons of machinery, dating from the 1870s to the 1980s, that have been carefully rescued and restored to working order. The London Cloth Company works with clients including Ralph Lauren, Hardy Amies, and DAKS. I'm proud to be one of Airbnb's top-reviewed hosts globally.

Staðsetning

We'll be at the London Cloth Company's mill in Epping Forest. The only working cloth mill in London, it's situated on the edge of town in a disused military barracks. It's easy to get to Epping on the tube using the Central line. We'll help you pool a taxi to the mill from the station.
