Cemar Lavoir de Laines

Abandoned: 2004

Visited: 2008

Zulte, Belgium

This industrial wool washery, or in French Lavoir de Laines, stopped its work in 2004. The factory was owned by Cecil Martens, hence the company name Cemar. The machines are still in its place today, covered in dust and slowly rusting away. Here the fresh shaven wool was washed to a clean wool product that was transported to the clothing companies.

The house of the managing director next door was also abandoned, see my report here.
