"Take a Tour of the Gobelins Workshops (Pt.2)" Paris Off The Beaten Path Tip by hquittner
Paris Off The Beaten Path: 1,968 reviews and 4,171 photos
A significant part of a visit is the modern art loom area. Tapestries and carpets by the original technic are still being made. It is amazing that immense carpets and tapestries are still placed in new enormous rooms built by governments and other places of wealth that can commission such things, often to very specific designs. There are also computer stored patterns and models that can originate ?original cartoons in the style of X?. The craft is still carried out in the original manner with the most ergonomically designed equipment using the mirror matching method to execute the cartoons. A visit includes the work area.
