Not just another village in the medieval British countryside, but also a birthplace of a man with the same name. Willem Heston lived in the late 13th century during the reign of Henry III. Forgotten by the historians Heston was a self-taught engineer capable of creating devices of extraordinary complexity. It is said that Leonardo DaVinci himself was impressed by Heston’s inventions and his work was greatly influenced by his ingenuity.
Perhaps his best-known work was the village “ferris” wheel, a horse powered carnival structure built out of timber centuries before the wheel is supposedly invented. Heston brought joy and happiness to the life of his home village and invented tools that improved the crops of the local farmers significantly. The FatCloth Heston is a tribute to this great man’s work. It contains the colors of joy to the 8-sided structure of Heston’s famous wheel of fun.
Heston is also available in Black!
