Dear fellow TT Forum members

We are travelling to Lyon France next month to visit the Musee des Tissues and the Centre International d'Etude des Textiles Anciens (CIETA).

We are experiencing difficulty making any kind of contact with any individual either at the museum or at CIETA. We understand there are UK members of CIETA if only we could identify them.

Please may we enquire if there are any TT Forum members who have any contacts, preferably English speaking, either at the museum or at CIETA.

Any clues as to how to penetrate these Lyon institutions would be most gratefully received.

Many thanks in anticipation

I cannot help you, unfortunately.

When I was in Lyon with a group many years ago, we had the opportunity to visit a place in which silk brocades were being woven (also velvet?), a very interesting experience, but I can't tell you where, in town.

This museum should also be interesting and is probably even a better way to learn about the weaving:
