Stories of life, stories of passion

Arles - Textile - Saturday 26 February 2022 at 4 pm. - Free

The silk velvet ribbon has been one of the characteristic attributes of the Arles costume since around 1840. By the end of the 19th century, it had also become an essential emblem of local culture.

The headdress ribbon would not have the brilliance that we know without a highly technical operation: sabrage. Using a small hand tool, the size of a scalpel, specially designed by a cutler, it is a matter of revealing the patterns of the ribbon by sanding the woven threads, creating velvety patterns in relief on the basis of the flat and mast pattern that comes off the loom.

This specialised know-how must be passed on to ensure its survival. In November 2014, as the time for a well-deserved retirement approached, Yvette Faure, Meilleur ouvrier de France and a recognised reference, passed the baton to the association "Li Decouparello de Velout", created in 2011 by her first twelve students.
