Our workshop-store: an essential visit when discovering Lyon's heritage!

Soierie Saint-Georges is where you can discover and become acquainted with Lyon's silk weaving history. During a guided tour, discover how silk and gold thread is woven on 19th century Jacquard looms. You'll be given a close up view of how fabrics designed for couturiers and chateau furnishings are made.

You'll be shown all the techniques that have shaped Lyon's history since the 16th century; all the different stages, from design drawings to weaving on traditional looms.

Our store offers the widest range of silks produced in Lyon at attractive prices. You'll be charmed by our ties, headscarves, scarves, stoles, wraps, chiffon and velvet fabrics, and more, all created thanks to traditional know-how.

This is part museum and part storefront focused on the historical silk industry that made Lyon what it is today. The silk scarves are all beautiful and reasonably priced. Definitely don't buy the made in China silk scarves that can be found in the more popular parts of old Lyon.

We stayed in the neighborhood, we had the address, and it still took us 3 days to find it. It's the back room of the silk STORE, with silk ties and scarves in the window. The museum has looms, bobbins, pattern books, and old fabrics.

This family-run business is a great place to visit right in the heart of Vieux Lyon (on Place de la Trinite) for a potted history of the silk industry in Lyon, and for access to beautiful Lyonnaise silk scarves. You can see the looms on which silk has been woven. I found this a friendly place.
