The piece celebrates the wonderful range of patterns and colours produced by the highly skilled men and women working in the silk ribbon industry in Coventry 200 years ago. Some of the moths carry quotations from an original sample book from Herbert’s collection and reveal how precarious the silk ribbon trade could be.
