A Closer Look John Boyd Textiles

A Closer Look - John Boyd Textiles
17 September 2013

For our next Closer Look we shall be visiting John Boyd Textiles in Castle Cary, believed to be the last remaining factory in the world producing horsehair fabrics for furnishings – the Irish chairs in the ballroom, and the modern benches throughout the Holburne are upholstered in their products. The factory is an astonishingly idiosyncratic and interesting hangover from the 19th century.  Further information from Trish Tassis at holburnefriends@gmail.com
