Musée du Tisserand Dauphinois (Weaving Museum)

Interesting
The silk industry avoided the revolts staged by the Canuts by transferring, in the 19C, to the Nord-Dauphiné region, where "Voiron cloth", made of hemp, had been produced for more than two centuries. In this rehabilitated former cloth mill you will come across spools, treadle spinning wheels, handmade velvet manual looms, and the Jacquard loom, to name but a few. The machinery is still functioning and able to produce small pieces of work. One section of the museum is given over to tulle-making and lace-making.
