150 years ago, the first shirtmaking workshop opened in Argenton-sur-Creuse. Over the years, the city became a hotspot for the shirt industry. We invite you to discover the work and life of the "blouses" that have made Argenton famous thanks to the reconstruction of a workshop.

You will discover the different stages of making a shirt: the patronage, cutting, assembly, folding ... but also the holidays of St. Catherine, corporate travel. Many photos of workshops and a video complete this space, witness of an industrial memory still present a few years ago
