About the location

Musée du textile
Rue du Docteur Roux, 49300 Cholet
  • Maine-et-Loire
  • Pays de la Loire
The museum is housed in a laundry built in 1881, which operated until 1940\. Its garden invites you to discover the unusual use of tinctorial and fiber plants in the crafts and textile industry. In a maze of colours, these plant species reveal the secrets of a thousand-year-old know-how. It provides a rich and lively panorama of the choletaise textile industry. We find there the steps of the manufacture of the fiber to the yarn and the yarn to the fabric. Last workshop of manufacture handkerchief red of Cholet.
