The Weaving Mill 
(Humboldt Park)

The Weaving Mill is an artist-run industrial weaving studio in Chicago. They make limited runs of woven home goods and apparel, focusing on creative use of deadstock, scrapped, and recycled yarns, as well as supply-chain-forward contemporary materials. In partnership with social services agency Envision Unlimited, they provide textile education workshops for adults with developmental disabilities and host an experimental artist residency program. Through their projects, textile and otherwise, they aim to fill the space between the hand and industrially made and bring the mechanics of textile production into wider view.
