Halifax was well known around the world for it's carpet manufacturing and in particular John Crossley and Sons. It was founded in 1803 by Mr John Crossley. Important advances were made in 1833, when the firm purchased patents for the making of printed tapestries and velvets, and in 1850, when the first carpet power loom was established.
