£3.00

Manufacturer: Past Tense Publications

Product Information

For centuries, silkweaving was one of London’s biggest industries, employing thousands in the East End. Through the 18th century, the silkweavers fought to defend their wages & conditions: their tactics included strikes, riots, sabotage and more. In some ways the issues they faced, and the methods they used, anticpate those of the later Luddite movement; but with crucial differences.
