Silk is manufactured in Lyon since the 16th century. They make beautiful things of skill, it must be one of the best jobs. :)

The workshop can be visited only by groups of 40-50 people, but if you have the chance to get into a group, don't miss it.

They will explain in details how to work with silk and also show the phases from the weaving to the colored silk scarf.

They work with a modern techniques and transform a white piece of silk into a beautiful scarf. But some of the fine painting is still made with handwork, great, isn't it?

You can also buy silk things there, scarfs, handkerchiefs, ties, they are wonderful, but very expensive.
