Carpet Museum

Carpet Museum: A working handloom forms the centre piece of the exhibition. The loom is set up to recreate the Kidderminster weave.

Other exhibits include a scale model of a Brussels loom, a wooden model of the hand knotting Turkey Work upright loom and an accurate reproduction of a mill steam engine.

Many samples depicting the range of carpets produced in Kidderminster are displayed including a Spool Axminster sample dated 1878.

Carpet designs, pictures, old company price-lists, photographs and many more historical items help to make a visit to the Weavers Loft worthwhile.
