Textile Factory




Rydal is a Swedish village where there used to be a spinning mill. The factory is now closed but it hosts a textile museum.

On Tuesdays, just post any photo you like (it must be one of your own) that contains the color RED and then link to this blog.

  1. Your photos have a lot of texture and are quite tactile – like I want to reach out and touch that stone or those red spools. Though touching the red spools is probably dangerous.

  2. If you didn’t describe it, these spools look like ruby candles. The old factory is housed in a fabulous stone building, a throwback to ages past. The character in the old cannot be replicated by modern steel framed buildings. A fine capture!

  3. Excellent shots. I have been to textile museums up in Yorkshire which (along with Lancashire) was the home of the textile industry in the 18th and 19th centuries in the UK. I’ve also been to a working textile mill, again in Yorkshire. Although working conditions have much improved, the technology is relatively similar, and the smell of wet wool can’t have changed at all. Hot, steamy, noisy – very tough conditions indeed.
