CREUSE Aubus­son

Bordeaux J'Adore - - Exploring - www.tourisme-aubus­son.com

Aubus­son has been cel­e­brated for the ex­tra­or­di­nary tal­ent of its weavers for six cen­turies. Their ta­pes­tries and rugs have dec­o­rated the finest build­ings in the world. The vil­lage it­self is lovely to visit, with plenty to do for all ages, in­clud­ing hands-on work­shops. The Cité In­ter­na­tionale de la Tapis­serie and its Mu­seum is the best start­ing point for your trip. The con­tem­po­rary re­con­struc­tion im­merses visi­tors in the world of Aubus­son weav­ing in a way that is both en­gag­ing and in­for­ma­tive. Visit the 16th cen­tury Mai­son du Tapissier - Weaver’s House - to see what it was like to be a weaver.
