Fashion and textiles, heritage, innovation, education, so many keys to address the richness and diversity of textiles know-how from France and worldwide. The magazine offers a journey through the ages and continents, uncovering ancient, popular and contemporary techniques, for a full and informed exploration of textile design.

The various publications take interest in activities of craftsmen, textile suppliers, fashion houses, designers, museums and artists, all committed to the excellence and diversity of textile craft.
