When Sekers Fabric closed its doors 2006, it fell to the employees to preserve as much of the factory and its design history as possible. Perhaps you’ve got curtains made with Sekers fabric, or some of the factory’s tools hanging in your shed, or maybe you’ve repurposed an old piece of its machinery? These objects have stories to tell about the region’s cultural heritage, and we want to hear them. 


Sekers Objects is a Heritage Lottery Funded project and we are organising a series of
Archive Pop-Ups to enable you to bring and share your Sekers object. We want to hear the stories and memories of these objects, and we want to use them to create a digital archive which preserves and celebrates the important role this company played in West Cumbria’s heritage. So, whether they are squirrelled away under beds, hidden in sheds or occupying pride of place on the mantel piece, dust down your Sekers objects and tell their story at one of our pop-up events.

Archive Pop-Up dates coming soon...
