Cité de la Dentelle et de la Mode

Recommended
The buildings of the Boulart factory - which housed 80 tulle and lace looms until the beginning of the 20C - have been extended by an astonishing steel and glass structure, designed by the architects Moatti and Rivière, where you will see screen prints featuring motifs drawn from Jacquard templates. The museum provides a link between the past and the future, presenting both manually produced lacework and contemporary fashion creations.
