Whoever closes his eyes to the past is blind to the present.
Richard von Weizsäcker

Weber.. (also clothmaker) is someone who practices the craft of weaving as a profession. The weaver produces different fabrics from yarns. In the Middle Ages, weaving was one of the most dishonest professions (not regarded).

The loom enabled the weaver to produce fabrics of high quality. However, the mechanical looms and industrialization brought the end of this formerly very common craft. This upheaval brought many weavers to their existence. This theme was portrayed by Gerhart Hauptmann in the drama "Die Weber".
