In the early 18th century each NY state home hand-wove, on average, nearly ten yards of cloth per family member. By mid-century - after the power loom had reached America - that number had fallen to less than one yard. Our master weaver has woven one of the most popular weaving structures of the early nineteenth century, called "Huckaback." It is exactly the type of cloth that William Beekman himself would have most likely sold in his store.
Our Fenimore Pattern is named after the family of author James Fenimore Cooper, whose father was Judge William Beekman's judicial colleague. We imagine that these two neighboring county judges must have often visited each others homes.
