Arahne in Textiles Zentrum Haslach – Austria
Recently we have installed few ArahWeave systems in Textiles Zentrum Haslach – in the city of Haslach, which is situated in a beautiful countryside of Upper Austria.
The Textile Center Haslach is a cooperation of five partners residing under one roof in a historic factory building and wants to carry on spinning the thread of the Mühlviertel’s textile tradition. Each has a different focus which leads to synergy between museum, production, education and art. As an open house the Textile Center Haslach offers the possibility to look into history as well as the present situation of textile production and design processes, and to gain insight into complex textile interrelationships in an exceptional ambiance.
There you can find perfectly organized and presented exhibitions, join the guided tour trough real working textile production from fiber mixing to fabric weaving, producing articles, which you can purchase in their store, but I was most impressed that even people, who work in Textile Center management know how to change a weft yarn and start a loom. This is guaranty that the rich textile knowledge and culture wil not be lost.
