Made of kraft paper twisted around steel wire, the paper covered wires, acting as threads, are fed into the loom to produce woven sheets of material with a rattan look. The Lloyd Loom woven material offers a smooth, snag free texture, providing more cushioning than rattan. Adding to its appeal, the chip free paper surface can be easily coated in unlimited colours and treated for durable indoor and outdoor usage.
As rattan became less available and more expensive after World War I, Lloyd looked for an alternative to rattan and founded the Lloyd Loom technique of weaving thread made of kraft paper twisted around a thin steel wire producing a woven material with the appearance of rattan. Unlikely did Lloyd realize that his solution would revolutionize the furniture market.
From commercial popularity, the demand for Lloyd Loom furniture expanded to private residences, making Lloyd Loom a household name in Europe. In , Belgium based furniture manufacturer, Vincent Sheppard re-established the Lloyd Loom technique moving production to Indonesia in The result will be an out-of-the-box, festive photo series celebrating the character and unique look of our Lloyd Loom furniture.

By constantly challenging ourselves and the material, we have been able to present new, surprising designs that showed consumers that the material was still very much up-to-date and modern.

June 1, Her reaction was typical of a generation, brought up between the wars, that now regards the products of that highly successful company as more than a little pass’e. Until the Lloyd Loom Company ceased production in , its armchairs, tables, and linen baskets could be found in homes across Britain, and even on ocean liners. For years these items have been slipping downmarket, relegated to the guest bedroom, the junk shop, or the bonfire. But a new generation has discovered Lloyd Loom furniture and a second wave of popularity is under way.
Its invention grew out of the popularity of wicker furniture in the 19th century.

Entrepreneur Marshall Burns Lloyd, who was producing baby carriages and strollers at that time, found himself confronted with a severe drop in the supply of rattan as a result of the war. As an alternative, he invents a technique in which paper is twisted around a metal wire and subsequently machine woven into large sheets of woven paper thread. When putting the material to use in his production of baby carriages, he discovers that this new material is not only much stronger, but also a lot more softer and thus more comfortable than rattan.
He calls his invention the ‘Lloyd Loom’ technique. Marshall Burns Lloyd immediately puts his new material to use in his baby carriages. The first Lloyd Loom products were these charming strollers. Thanks to the industrial production process on large weaving looms, the production time of baby carriages dropped immensely. In addition, the new material solved all previous complaints about the carriages being uncomfortable or not sturdy enough. Lusty develops a unique line of typically English furniture, that soon became all the rage in the UK and the rest of Western Europe.
At the height of its success, in the ‘s, Lusty’s Lloyd Loom furniture could be found in hotels, restaurants and tea rooms, as well as aboard Zeppelin, cruise ships and ocean-going liners, thus becoming a household name. Lusty’s chapter of success comes to an abrupt end however when his production plant gets hit by an air raid in Luckily, none of the employees gets harmed as the disaster happened on a Saturday.
The plant on the other hand is destroyed completely, causing the end of the first large scale manufacturing facility of Lloyd Loom furniture. The years after the disaster, the characteristic Lloyd Loom chairs never lost their appeal and the iconic furniture remained popular amongst many interior lovers.
Vincent Sheppard Celebrates the 100th Anniversary of Lloyd Loom Weaving
In Lusty, a packing case manufacturer, acquired the rights to mass-produce furniture using the American method of weaving twisted paper fibre, patented under the name Lloyd Loom. The product, which could be woven in a variety of patterns, was attached over bentwood frames and often imitated popular furniture forms made in other materials.
Lloyd Loom furniture replaced wicker furniture, which was more expensive and less durable. It was produced in vast quantities from the s to the s. Production-line methods reduced costs but allowed little creative input for individual craftsmen.
A guide to Lloyd Loom furniture, the brainchild of Marshall Burns Lloyd. It contains chapters on the furniture’s origins, the way it was made, how to date it and.
Marshall Burns Lloyd created a process by which cellulose strands are woven into a wicker fabric as an alternative to the then popular method of wrapping cane around a frame. Each hand-crafted piece of Lloyd Loom furniture made today uses the same process to create the loom fabric, though we’ve added advanced technologies over the last quarter century to produce a continuous strand that will not burr, crack, or peel, resulting in a consistently smooth weave. The fiber used to create Lloyd Loom fabric is twisted into a sturdy cord and wound onto small spools, then rewound onto larger spools that feed into the looms.
Our looms draw cord simultaneously from more than spools to weave the Lloyd Loom fabric. A unique feature of Lloyd Loom is the use of aluminum stakes encased in loom fiber. These stakes are inserted into the fabric for enhanced stability and durability. Once the loom fabric is woven, it’s sealed to withstand the elements, dried and wrapped onto massive spools. These spools are taken to the cutting room, where the wicker fabric is cut to shape for each piece of furniture.
Skilled craftsmen fit these pieces of fabric to aluminum frames that are shaped and welded in our facility, taking great care to stretch the wicker into place and secure it with custom-made stainless steel staples. The edges are trimmed and wicker braid is fitted into place by hand so that each piece is beautifully finished.
