A Creative Community
Joining the community of Villa Châteaufavier also means getting opportunities to meet and collaborate during professional events. Workshops, conferences, and exhibitions are organized in the area throughout the year, such as for the National Days of Wool or the European Days of Felt in Felletin.
Tenants at Villa Châteaufavier will also benefit from the worldwide artistic and cultural influence of the Cité internationale de la tapisserie (International House of Tapestry and Woven Art) and its comprehensive program of events. Between museums, art centers, galleries, third-places, theaters, and associations, your project will be supported by an entire community of artistic and cultural entities.
Your Project in Action
Our network of partners throughout the Aubusson-Felletin area provides training through special wool and textile modules and is by your side all the way up through the production phase.
Various entities in the textile industry will come together around your project, providing you with numerous benefits, including the sourcing of materials via the Lanathèque digital platform, the chance to have meetings with companies from the CCI network and the industry association Lainamac, and small-scale production and prototyping in workshops with the certification of Manufacture de proximité (local factory).
The textile business incubator 2Cube, an integral part of Villa Châteaufavier, offers help for branding and market development as well as assistance in sourcing traceable materials.
