Discover everything there is to know about the traditional Dutch craft of sailcloth and windmill cloth weaving at the Weaver’s House on the Zaanse Schans. In the eighteenth century, two families lived in the Weaver’s House, right in-between the five looms.
The Weaver’s House served as a weaving mill until the start of the twentieth century. In 2015, the house was reconstructed at the Zaanse Schans and is now used by the Zaans Museum to demonstrate the traditional craft of home-weaving.
Experience how it really was: take a seat behind the loom, grab some rest in the box bed, and come meet the weavers in their traditional costume.
The Weaver’s House also houses a traditional-looking shop filled with unique gift items. Here you’ll find an exciting range of original gift items and tools relating to the craft of weaving and to textiles.
