How to make your own Templeton carpets…

June 21, 2011

Should you fancy having a go at making your own Templeton carpets, have a look at this excellent and somewhat psychedelic film showing the interior of the Templeton carpet factory and the carpet designing and manufacturing process in the early 1970s.


In February,  excerpts from this film were shown as part of the Glasgow Film Festival screening of ‘The Inventors of Tradition’ exhibition on the textile industry in Scotland.

    It’s a pity that we can’t see the whole film. There’s only a little excerpt from it – 65 seconds and there seems to be no way to see the whole film as described in your write-up.

      Hi Helen,

      Thanks for your comment. Yes, it’s a pity this is just a short clip as the film is a real gem. The film in its entirety is available via the Scottish Screen Archive. There is an option to make an enquiry on the webpage with the video clip. Thanks, Michelle.
