Together with our partner Mill in Lancashire we weave beautiful selvedge denim on two 1950s Blackburn Northrop Shuttle looms. These looms produce a fabric which is unique and full of character.
When I first made the trip to the mill getting off the train in the market town of Skipton and then making the long scenic drive through the hills and valleys of East Lancashire, I had no idea of what I would find at my destination. Turning into the country lane that acts as their driveway and winding down the valley, following that same stream that originally powered the mills Arkwright wheel I was struck with the same feeling I had when I pulled up in front of Cone Mills. That the experience I was about to have was going to change the course of my life, as it has.
