Aubusson tapestry - Tourism, holidays & weekends guide in the Creuse

Well known all over the world for its landscapes and contemporary works, the Aubusson tapestry is an important six-century-old craft tradition. Nowadays, this art is perpetuated thanks to the know-how of the workshops and factories in Aubusson and Felletin.

To know more about the tapestry of Aubusson, do not miss a trip to the tapestry-maker's house in Aubusson, a magnificent 16th-century building that traces the history and tradition of Aubusson tapestries.

Not to be missed either, the Tapestry museum, which offers unique pieces dating from the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries, as well as temporary exhibitions of contemporary works.
