Établissement de Condition publique des Soies

A porch decorated with the majestic head of a lion greets you as you make your way into this cultural centre where, in the 19C, the weight of silk was checked. As the material could weigh 15% more when wet, it was necessary that the weight was correct for trading purposes.
