About this product
- DescriptionThe woollen felt industry has w virtually disappeared, but it was once a flourishing and energetic trade that exploded onto the textile scene in 1840. During its ascendancy the felt trade created many of the key industries that are w taken for granted, such as roofing felt production, shoe manufacture, and soft toys. Nowadays, hand felt making as a craft is flourishing internationally, with craft workers rediscovering the products and versatility that made the felt industry famous. This book records the history, personalities and impact of the British industry, in the hope that felt can continue to re-establish itself as an eco-friendly, sustainable material suitable for the modern age.
- Author BiographyPeter Walter worked for 25 years in the British textile industry, including 8 years with the UK's largest felt manufacturer. He retired after 12 years in business consultancy and now spends his time wood turning, writing and researching medieval history.
