  • Nice place but te workshop is done only in French (is only one visitor is speaking French)
  • Awesome. Whether it's individual visits or the workshop of weaving for child. We are both delighted. If you do not know, you have to go. Friendly, affordable, well-designed shop. Heritage essential and unquestionable.
