The Felt Industry by Peter Walter
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The woollen felt industry has now 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 now 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 Biography
