Industrial Heritage

Grossröhrsdorf became the centre of tape and belt weaving in eastern Saxony as long ago as the mid-18th century. In 1834 Carl Gottlob Boden assembled the first Jacquard loom for the production of artistically patterned tapes. After 1945 the 68 small and medium-sized enterprises in Großröhrsdorf, Pulsnitz und Ohorn dedicated themselves to the art of tape weaving. In addition, there were numerous tape weaving mills in the surroundings, as well as weavers working at home.

Until 1978 almost all the regional enterprises of tape weaving were united as a large concern, VEB Bandtex. After the fall of the Berlin Wall, some tape weaving mills were able to start again under the forces of a market economy. The Technical Museum of Tape Weaving shows the development of tape weaving, exemplified by the craft tradition of Grossröhrsdorf, from the simple hand loom of 1680 to the modern weaving machines.
