Description:

From bobbin winders to warp knitters, the East Midlands has a proud heritage in clothing and textile manufacture. However, industries that once employed thousands of predominantly female workers have been in decline for years fighting against cheaper foreign imports. This compilation curated by the Media Archive for Central England remembers the boom years, and reflects on the work of the textile machinist which was both an art-form and a way of life.
