From 2013 booklet: The French capital of silk since the 16th century, three centuries after Lyon inaugurated a museum dedicated to textiles. Its collections stretch from the West to the East and down the centuries: Coptic tapestries, rugs from Asia Minor, Byzantine fabrics, Sicilian and Lyonnais creations… In this collection as lustrous as it is remarkable, Christine Henry selected the delicate textile patterns that here embellish the wings on this cloud of butterflies.
