The Fullery of Stephanus in Pompeii, Italy

Fulleries were an important business in ancient Pompeii.  Fullers processed, dyed, and washed cloth.  Washing was accomplished by soaking cloth in solutions of soda and urine.  The fullery of Stephanus (I.6.7) also included a private residence and it stood conveniently next door to the workshop of Verecundus, the textile manufacturer.  On the walls of the fullery were painted a number of images on a red background.
