About
Officially labeled “Made in Lyon” and “Living Heritage Company”, the largest collection of silks made in our workshops in Lyon (more than 1000 items in store)! Since 1890 Brochier family has been handing down a tradition born in Lyon in the 16th century: manufacturing exceptional natural silk fabrics and printing artists scarves. Four generations followed one another since the creation of the factory, each of them transmitting to the next one their passion for a work that demands a permanent involvement. The silk printing technique used in our workshop is inspired by the hand screen printing. It is also called "frame printing" or "à la Lyonnaise". Today, we combine the traditional techniques with the new generations of high-definition digital printing. For the napped velvet pieces, the velvet is hand painted with painbrushes. You will find here in our shop a unique collection of artists silk scarves and neck ties, Made in France.

I did not expect to see behind the doors of a small silk boutique such an impressive history of a french family that leaves behind an astonishing legacy of fabric making. Entering a cute shop of 3x3m, we accepted an invitation to a paid visit of a “family museum” … small but rich on interesting information. We discovered a Brochure family which generation after generation, from century to century, worked on their silk and fabric craft-ship to accumulate not only collaborations with many internationally known brands of Valentino, Chanel, Armani, but also artistic cooperations with famous artists like Chagall, Miro, Giacometti, etc…

What impressed me the most is the family’s endless desire to evolve with the time. Last generation and actual owner Cedric in addition to silk making founded Brochure Technologies. A branch which has been developing optical intelligent textiles to create incredible things for automobile, airspace, architecture, sport and medical industries. Fruits of those efforts go from creation of luminous 3D dresses to fabrication of supersonic Concorde airplane parts, passing by invention of photo-therapeutic machines or photo-catalysts to treat air and produce hydrogen. I was truly impressed, learned a lot and enjoyed the visit. Made me think … about my family ?!? hmmmm! Not much to say …

I spent my entire souvenir budget here! The scarves are, as to be expected, beautiful and unique, and knowing that they were made nearby made them quite special. I highly recommend a visit here, even if you do not purchase anything, to see the silkworms hard at work. Can’t say that they are particularly attractive, but their handiwork is.

A definite if you are interested in fine silk ties and scarves while visiting France. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to this lovely shop located in beautiful Lyon. I was able to find a beautiful tie for our daughter's upcoming wedding. Our Australian friends bought several scarves and a tie. Great service and packing for travel.

The pattern, design, and silk quality—sophisticated and colourful! A perfect place to pick up a few tradition fabric as souvenir or gifts for those you care about. It isn't cheap but €60 can get you a pretty neat piece. I recall the price goes up to about €300+. The patterns and colour blew my mind with so many to choose from, organized by types and hues. So if you know what you want, it's manageable, otherwise, you could spend 2 hours in this small shop. The back room is a small studio where a demo is held at certain time. The sell-lady showed us how silk thread is made and how the design/painting is done on the velvet silk. I really loved this store and wish I bought more silk scarf.

We arrived at Brochier Soieries, a shop specializing in silk fabric since 1890. The family had dedicated to keep the 16th century Lyon traditional industry alive. Now in the fourth generation, they also had close collaboration with a lot of artists (like Picasso and Monet) to recreate their creations on fabric.

Going inside we went to the back of the shop where they showed how the patterns were manually printed onto the fabric, as well as how the silk were woven in the first place. It was fascinating and we both liked the designs very much. In the end we bought a scarf of their renown pattern for my mother, and another for my wife, featuring the design of street artist Jake (€445).

We then asked the owner how to properly tie the knot of the scarf, and seeing how interested we were on his goods, he gave us two sets of special edition coffee mugs from the same street artist for free. A really friendly gentleman!

There are a number of shops in the area, but this was by far, the most beautiful. Excellent choice of chiffon and satin silk scarves....even both styles in one scarf (I bought two of them). Beautifully arranged in color palettes, you will love this excellent boutique!
