The museum showcases an antique 4-harness loom and memorabilia such as letters, artifacts, tailored suits, and photographs depicting highlights from the active years of the industry. Originally located in Biltmore Village, this arts & crafts enterprise had begun in 1901 as a woodcarving class for the sons of Biltmore Estate workers. Supported financially by George and Edith Vanderbilt, strong supporters of mountain art and craft, the Industries soon grew to include the weaving of homespun cloth and the building of handmade furniture. In 1917, the business was sold to Fred Seely (designer and manager of the Grove Park Inn) and then relocated to where Grovewood Gallery is housed today.
