At the beginning of the 20th century, Schalkenmehren, like many Eiffel villages, was characterized by small-scale weaving. The young elementary school teacher Anna Lehnert initiated the revival of rural weaving tradition that had once existed, thus to find a way out of poverty.

The idea bore more and more fruit, so that the Home-weaving-Cooperative Schalkenmehren eG was founded in 1926. Until the 1980s, it produced high-quality woven pieces that were appreciated throughout Germany under the trademark "Maartuch".

In memory of the weaving tradition, a museum was set up in 1993 in the former village school building in Schalkenmehren. Here, the history of the Cooperative as well as its social and economic importance is impressively illustrated. On the ground floor, looms, spinning wheels and reels can be admired, showcases show small works of art from over a period of six decades. The upper floor is dedicated to the subject areas "wool and wool processing", "clothing and old handicrafts" and the path "from flax to linen". In addition, an Eifel kitchen has been recreated.

Gain fascinating insights into another world and an almost lost, craft tradition!
