Holytex Tapestry.


Woven about 1940 at Holytex Mill in Flintshire. The oldest textile mill in Wales. It stated life as a cotton mill like a handful of Flintshire mills. Converting to woollen production around 1830. A large mill by Welsh standards , it worked on a simillar plan to the mills of Yorkshire & employed hundreds rather than a handful of workers like most other mills of the time.

Holytex was the first mill to employ an outside designer in the 1930s & it is here the the Swiss designer Marianne Straub designed Modernist double cloth patterns before going to work for such big names as Ernest Race.

This slightly later design, one that has a similar version at Penmachno Mill in Caernafonshire. Underwent many changes Mid century .

An unusual colourway & fairly light weight cloth. in deep rich Claret with contrasting Peppermint Green & Cream. With obligatory border designs on the two fringed sides. Fully reversable with more Cream on one side. A striking colourway. Pure wool.

Measures 80" x 60" ( 204cm x 154cm) plus the fringes

Perfect to lay sideways across the foot of a double or king.
