Fiche détaillée de "Silk in Auvergne Rhône-Alpes ; canuts and merchants"

The Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region is proud of its textile past, especially silk but also proud of the way it has adapted to the modern world of innovative fabrics, techniques and ways of working. Jean Etévenaux showcases this wealth and shows the particularities of Bach part of the region : Auvergne, Bugey, Dauphiné, Loire and Savoy. He explains who the famous canuts were and what they did. This technical and artistic heritage can be seen close up thanks to the many places that work to preserve both the memory and the actual machines used in the textile industry.
