National Savonnerie Manufacture, Lodeve Workshop
The Lodeve Workshop is uniquely annexed to the national manufacture of carpets of the Savonnerie. This unique place is where the exceptional carpets destined for embassies, national monuments, the Élysée and even for the collections of the national Mobilier, are still made using a 400 year old weaving technique. The Savonnerie Workshop works in particular with making stylish carpets and reproducing the works of contemporary artists (like Stéphane Bordarier, Julien Gardair Annick Top, Matali Crasset, and Ung No Lee). Four to seven years are necessary for the fabrication of one carpet. We invite you to participate in an intimate visit of a treasure of French heritage with a guide that will help you discover this unique place. This workshop maintains a high level of excellence in the tradition of high quality looming trades.
Reservations are mandatory, through the Tourism Office.
