Infos

In the heart of Cervières, come into an unique museum in France: the Museum-workshop of goldwork embroidery. You will discover the history and the technique of the embroiderers called "Grenadières".

The goldwork embroidery has existed in the Haut-Forez territory since the 19th century. Women worked mainly for military industry and made the grenade of policemen and firemen, so they took the name of "grenadières".
The industry peaked in the 50's. The embroiderers worked on embroideries for military uniform as well as civil suits or the famous academician suit.
In the museum, you can admire examples of those réalisations and discover the technique of goldwork embroidery and the transmission of this skill nowadays known as an artistic profession.

Each visit finishes with a show that permits to you to talk with the embroiderer and to understand its technique. You can also try by yourself!!
