The Croix-Rousse district is the silk district, and lots more as well. Soierie Saint-Georges in the heart of Vieux-Lyon, reminds us that Lyon's silk weaving adventure, which is also at the origin of the city's wealth, began in the 16th century.

In this modern day of synthetic textiles, set out to meet the keen artisans who are still perpetuating Lyon's silk weaving tradition on Jacquard looms. As Ludovic de la Calle, the owner, is fond of saying, "Crossing the threshold of the workshop takes you back several centuries!"

Witness the transformation of silk, from thread to fabric, exchange with an enthusiastic craftsman, and discover collections of accessories made in Lyon in the store. We have everything you need to give a touch of authenticity to all your gifts!
