12 hours of training on 4-pedal weaving loom (Training in French or English)
Even if Aubusson is better known than Felletin for its tapestries, the cradle of the tapestry remains Felletin. Felletin's weaving was appreciated for its quality, among other things for the "Felletin sheets" which were often found in wedding trousseaux in the 18th and 19th centuries as luxury items.
