We visited the Maison des Canuts [House of the Weavers] for a tour of the historic silk weaving industry in Lyon. Who is not seduced by the sheen of silk?
Many beautiful things to choose in the show room.
The jacquard loom was invented in 1804 and helped speed up the intensive weaving process. Even today, in an 8 hour working day, only 30cm of silk jacquard is produced. France has 10 master weavers.
On our way to the Maison we can across this amazing mural.
