Almgren silk factory is the oldest active industrial environment in Scandinavia. During the 19th century the factory was a large scale women's workplace well known for its beautiful silk shawls worn by women throughout the country. Even today, silk fabrics and ribbons are woven on the original looms.

Knut August Almgren opened his silk mill in 1833. After a time as an apprentice in Lyon, France, Europe's center for silk weaving at the time, he brought back the knowledge of the latest invention in weaving to Sweden, the Jacquard loom.

This invention simplified pattern weaving. During his adventures, he also managed to bring some of the Jacquard looms home. His silk weaving mill became an important institution in Sweden and was the biggest workplace for women in Scandinavia, producing silk upholstery for royal households and silk neckerchiefs for the peasantry.

The mill moved to Repslagargatan 15 in 1846 and was running until 1974. It’s one of the oldest industrial heritage in its original place in Northern Europe and the factory environment is preserved with the large weaving room with windows facing the courtyard.

Floor 3 shows an exhibition about the history of the Silk Factory. Here you can see examples of upholstery fabrics, shawls and ribbons that have been made in the factory and learn about how silk is made.
