Consisting of two workshops, commonly referred to as the dye factory and the textile factory. In the previous issue of the magazine, the dye factory was featured, in this is issue I’ll take you on a walk though the main factory.
A little history first. The textile factory was a rather large privately held company categorised under Broadwoven Fabric Mills and consisted of a few factories Australia wide. However with the changing times and after loosing a factory in Ballarat, Victoria, to a fire, they had no option but to close the doors on their other factories. This one in particular the staff walked out in 1992 and it has not been touched since.
