This is a real “living workshop” of jacquard weaving. More than 2 centuries of the technique’s development are retraced through fifteen or so weaving machines (from the 18th century to the present day), all of which are demonstrated by a weaver during the guided tour. Wall tapestries and decorative textile accessories are on sale at the museum’s shop.
