Weiss Carpet Weavers
The great grandfather of the current owner, Rupert Weiss, was a weaver of carpets and linen goods with a workshop in the Getreidegasse. Back then there was no shop, until one was eventually opened by Rupert’s father around 60 years ago.
The shop and workshop are still here today with old weaving looms capable of producing carpets up to 400 cm wide. The interior of the enchanting shop has an extremely homely atmosphere. Eye-catchers include the old weaving loom and the magnificent rustic rural furniture. There is a wide range of beautiful hand-woven carpets.
One very special product is the fishbone carpet. Single-colour sheep’s wool carpets woven in fishbone are available in a variety of colours. A special technique is also used to make exclusive, extra-thick carpets in single or multiple colours. Linen hand towels, aprons, cushions and padded rag rug slippers with felt soles are also very popular items.
