Festive on ‘The Really Welsh Christmas Show’
In December 2014, ‘The Really Welsh Christmas Show’ presenter, Sophie Evans, visited Festive tinsel factory. Festive is known as the largest tinsel manufacturer in the UK, with more than 12 million metres produced each year.
Once in the twinkling and glamorous realm of high-quality tinsel, Sophie had only one obsession: find out the fabrication process.
The BBC TV host was therefore shown one of our state-of-the-art tinsel machines, which, after shredding the sparkly metallised PVC into strips, attaches the tinsel bands to a firm metal wire. Our tinsel machines resemble candy floss makers!
The TV host was particularly astonished to see how rapid producing the shiny and timeless Christmas decoration is!
