Plate printing is a technique developed in India. Silk has been plate-printed in Lyon since the 17th century. To produce a design, you have to layer several plates, one for each colour.
After a quick presentation of this ancient technique, it’s time to get your hands dirty! You choose our plate with the motif you prefer. Everyone can print and produce their own silk scarf. Our workshop manager helps you to create your twill square.
As the silk has to be processed after printing, your scarf is sent to you one month later to the address of your choice.

We organise two types of workshop:
-Privilege Pack: print your scarf, choosing your motif, composition and colour. You’ll receive your own personal scarf. The workshop is for up to 2 people, lasts 2 hours, and costs €350/person.
-Group Pack: print your scarves together, choosing your motif and colour. You’ll each receive a scarf with your group’s design. The workshop is for 3 to 6 people, lasts approximately 1.5 hours, and costs €300/person.
