Visiting Le Musée des Tissus

On the afternoon of November, 15, the curator of Le Musée des Tissus accompanied ISU delegation to visit the museum. The museum houses approximately 2.5 million pieces of fabric, the oldest collection dating back to 2500 BC. In the 16th century, Lyon was the first silk textile workshop to become the silk capital of France. In the 17th and 18th centuries, the Lyon silk industry ushered in the golden age and became the most important silk producing area in Europe, but then suffered bottlenecks due to overproduction. In the 19th century, with the support of Napoleon, Lyon silk was reborn. In the 1930s, it was once again in crisis.
