The House of Braids and Laces, alongside the banks of the Dorlay River and behind the walls of a former textile factory, witnesses a rich local industrial past. This place, thanks to its natural environment, the essential role of water and the hydraulic installations built in order to harness its power, and also its architecture, stands as one of the last representatives of the numerous factories that existed in the valley.  


The workshop, filled with wooden braiding machines, becomes for the time of the guided visit the living conservatory of a unique – but still unknown - expertise. Our association’s goal is to revive this distant echo from our collective memory.
