Silk was the principal industry in the Cévennes right up to the second World War. In fact, in the middle of the 19th century, the Cévennes contributed half the 26,000 tons of cocoons produced in France. The region was one of the leading silk production areas in the world!

Our Silk Museum bears witness to this prestigious past, one fabulously rich in technical and cultural aspects, and still very much in the memories of people in the Cévennes.
