Art, history, passion…
Art, know-how, history, passion… In a territory like the Creuse, which now draws its strength from its weaknesses, the legacy of the past has not been squandered. And today it brightens the future! From the roughest granite castle, to the most delicate tapestry work, through monumental sculptures or small impressionist touches… here for centuries, man has been creating with genius a living and unique garden!
In the land of the Masons of the Creuse who shaped Paris and its architecture, the Creuse builders made stone an art. Here it is the stone, there it is the wool, which delivers its secret message with the Tapestries and our artists, our craftsmen, translate it with emotion, imagination and talent. Let us not forget Impressionism, since it is in Creuse that Claude Monet signed his first series of 24 paintings.

Other places such as the Maison du tapestry, workshops, factories and spinning mills also open their doors to you to discover this still very lively wool sector.
