Lloyd Flanders - Outdoor Furniture Collections
In 1906, Marshal B. Lloyd opened the Lloyd Manufacturing Company in Menominee, Michigan, where he developed a timeless and unique process of creating fine woven furniture. In 1917 Marshal Lloyd created a process by which cellulose strands are woven into a wicker fabric, an alternative to the then popular method of wrapping cane around a frame. Each hand crafted piece of Lloyd Loom furniture that is created today uses the same technique to create the loom fabric, though new advanced techniques have been added to the process to produce a continuous strand that will not bur, crack, or peel, resulting in a consistently smooth weave. Lloyd Loom furniture is still made in the same factory where this process was developed, almost a century ago.
