The tapestry, a living know-how
In addition to the works of art exhibited in the walls of the Cité internationale de la tapisserie d’Aubusson, visitors can discover the entire textile art sector in Creuse, from the sheep to the tapestry !
If the city of Aubusson has remained in the history books, Felletin, its neighbour, was also the driving force behind the fame of this ancestral art. This is where you can visit the Terrade spinning mill. In this company, which is still in business, the raw wool is processed in bales to make yarn and dye in a traditional way. In Creuse, contemporary creation is encouraged in particular by the Cité Internationale de la tapisserie d’Aubusson. In the form of a call for projects, artists are invited to use their imagination to renew this ancestral art.
