Silk Weaving Museum

Karl August Almgren established a silk mill in Stockholm in 1833, and it subsequently grew into a sizeable manufacturing complex, with some four-storey buildings. Some of the Jacquard looms that he installed are still in situ and still working. Visitors to the mill are able to see all aspects of silk production. Almgren and his descendants were paternalistic employers, encouraged the opening of a co-operative shop in 1867, and subsequently introduced health and retirement insurance schemes.
