Memory of textile fibres


At the Ethnographic Museum of Brasov took place the varnishing of the exhibition entitled ?Memory of textile fibres: from manual braiding to mechanical knitting?, a very successful project, that also capitalized a museum piece from the end of the 19th century, namely a loom made in Germany by Fritz Faust company from Apolda. After spending years in the warehouses of the museum, without anyone knowing what its use was, what is it and how does it works a weaver master was contacted, who recognized it immediately and said that the loom was used for making tulle materials of 2.20 meters width.

The tulle knitting loom

?We had it in the warehouse, but we didn?t know what it was. It is a piece of the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century. The loom has a cast iron casing provided with wooden beams for netting, electrically operated. The movement is printed with the cogged rollers and the driving belts. This gear entrains the knitting needles fixed on two longitudinal metal bars?, told us Ligia Fulga, Manager of the Ethnographic Museum of Brasov.
The staff of the museum made a demonstration and the loom turned on and went off without a hitch after all those years. A true masterpiece of those times.

The textile universe, in an exhibition

Alongside the knitting techniques presented in Room 1, dedicated to the textile heritage, the exhibition also touches other technical trades in the textile field, archaeologically tested as being the oldest known in the history of humanity. These are the braiding techniques using a minimalist primary equipment, such as ?bat braiding?. In this context it is also presented the chenille braiding using the drumstick hod, attested as a handicraft practiced by the locals of the Schei neighbourhood for hundreds of years. The exhibition is worth visiting given that the development of the textile industry of Brasov may be seen.

The Museum - 50 years old

The Ethnographic Museum of Brasov celebrates this year 50 years of existence, it is a special event, an anniversary that the museum staff experiences with emotions, and also consciousness. The museum is highly appreciated in the entire country, and abroad since it hosts several heritage collections systematically enriched. The current permanent exhibition called ?The memory of the textile fibres: from the manual braiding to mechanical knitting? signifies a restart of the Ethnographic Museum of Brasov.
