The talented craftspeople of France's Limousin region
Issued on: Modified:
In France's Limousin region, arts and crafts are a tradition. For six generations, a family of tilers have been decorating the roofs of houses in the area. In an old factory, they make flat tiles by hand, baked in an old gas oven. Another Limousin tradition is wool processing. We meet Mariche, who uses a set of age-old techniques to make felt pieces (pictured).
