Manufacturing workshop


Workshop for the manufacture of knitted items, in a traditional way on hand looms, made to measure.
Presentation of the business and the cashmere sector.

In the land of the silkworm, cashmere weaves its own tradition.
In the Cévennes, in Saint-Martial (Gard), better known for its beautiful sweet onions and tasty chestnuts, flourishes in an old olive grove, the Artisanal Cashmere, whose exceptional production is torn apart.

The saga started in 1990 and has survived all the scraps, textile crisis in mind.
Better still, after a sixth employee at the end of 2013, a seventh will soon join this microfabricator of woolen sweaters from Mongolian goats, Capra Hisca, which live in their natural state and whose raw fleece - only the hair on the chest and collar are used - is reeled by Scottish spinning. Long hairs lighter than the wind that have made its legend.
6 to 8 cm long and 10 to 12 microns thick: this hair only grows in extreme cold.

The workshop, Lilliputian, is in its own juice. Studious atmosphere.
Apart from a wall of balls and its 250 colors, the decor is spartan: a small radio spits out of old tubes, boxes occupy the heart of the room and a poster of the silkworm festival of ... 1994 challenges.

Visit by appointment in the afternoon.
