The “Fourmiguier” factory

This building, known as ‘La Gaudane’ was built in 1881 and it housed the first embroidery factory also known as ‘La Fabrique’ (The Factory).

On the very site of what was the cradle of Cordese embroidery at the beginning of the industrial era, the only Cordese embroidery loom still in working order is preserved. At the same time, historical documents, letters, machines and commentaries come together to shed light on this activity in the life of Cordoba.
Guided tour with explanation of how the loom works.
