Ribbon Weaving in Wuppertal

A good thirty years after its foundation, the Ribbon Weaving Museum can be found in a new, almost ideal location: in the Elberfelder Nordstadt in the Gold-Zack building, built around 1910. For decades, ribbons and strands were produced there.

The permanent exhibition covers over 100 years of ribbon weaving and belt turning with functioning looms, belt tables and other machines, products of old and new types, documents, models and much more. The heart of the exhibition is the old-style house ribbon weaving room, which illustrates the life of a ribbon weaving family in the first quarter of the 20th century. Past and present meet in the Ribbon Weaver Museum. The specific functioning machines and equipment and the wide variety of products are embedded in an ambience that is stimulating for laymen and experts alike.
