Stockholm

Gorgeous spools of silk yarn from the only remaining silk weaving production works in all of Sweden.   The luminescent colors glow with light and excite the senses.   The Sidenvåveri och Museum was originally a silk weaving factory founded by K. A. Almgren in the early 1800's.  At its peak, the factory employed over 300 workers, most working directly with the looms (warping, winding, and weaving).  Today, only one skilled weaver produces all of the handmade silk cloth that comes from this location.
