Sa, 27th July 9:00 - 18:00 / So, 28th July 9:00 - 17:00
The Weaver´s Market in Haslach has become a magnet for the public. It is located in the narrow streets of the oldest part of the town. 100 exhibitors from several nations have the possibility to display the range of their textile creations, all of them exquisite hand-made products. The market is renowned far beyond the area for the high quality of the goods as well as for its pleasant atmosphere and has been recognised with a prize on several occasions. Every year a mixed jury selects the participants from the several hundred applicants. Beside the Weaver´s Market also the so called „Faserzone“ takes place, a yarn and material fair where producers and traders can offer their goods.
If you are interested to apply for exhibiting goods at the Weaver´s Market or the „Faserzone“ please find the application form and more details on the website:

Guided tour through the Textile Centre Haslach
Sat, 27 July, 14:00 - 16:00 / Son, 28 July, 10:00 – 12:00 / Son, 28 July, 14:00 – 16:00
Domiciled under the roof of the historical buildings of a textile factory, the Textile Centre Haslach is a cooperation of 5 partners, who want to further develop the textile tradition of the Mühlviertel region. As their focusses are different, many and varied synergies arise between the poles of museum, production, training and art.
The Textile Centre Haslach hosts the newly designed Museum of Weaving. It displays the steps of processing from flax preparation to the finished linen as well as the development of the handlooms through to the Jacquard loom. Textile materials and techniques can be grasped in the true sense of the word and be experienced with all senses. The devices and machines of the museum are operated for demonstration purposes and are also used for production. During the guided tour visitors also see the modern machines on the production floor and the course rooms of the Textile Centre Haslach.
