The art of embroidery ("La broderie" in French) is added to desired on an already-maufactured fabricks.

A HISTORIC SITE
The Fashion Museum is located in a part of the former Annociades' Convent whose architectural traces are still visible: spiral staircase, Gothic doors, vaulted cellar... The building itself is worth the detour. It is situated in the heart of Albi’s heritage, an area full of history: the Saint-Julien district.
