Haus der Seidenkultur

At the House of Silk Culture, a friend's association preserves the special silk weaver tradition of parament weaving, which was practised in Krefeld over 100 years ago. The association regularly organises guided tours and temporary exhibitions on all aspects of traditional craftsmanship and the highly-prized items it produces. On original wood-jacquard hand looms, weavers demonstrate the intricate jacquard and velvet weaving process. The House of Silk Culture therefore represents a piece of the living history of textiles in Krefeld.
