'The Irvine Valley towns of Darvel and Newmilns were, until recently, world famous in the manufacture of lace products ... Before the factory system was introduced with the advent of the power loom in 1872, lace was produced on handlooms in hundreds of cottages in the Valley. The handloom weavers in the days of this domestic system of manufacture then walked over the moor with their rolls of cloth to sell them in the markets of Paisley and Glasgow - hence the name The Weavers' Trail.'
