Weave history

Linen on me

Quintin has a history woven in linen! The linen trade was a booming business between the 16th and the 19th centuries. Quintin’s architectural heritage is a testimony to this rich past.

Weave a cloth

From linen cloths to riches

This small town of character has a rich architecture: half-timbered houses, a 19th century basilica and small lanes with interesting names. The linen trader mansions particularly stand out. They have a symmetrical stone front and copy the famous Saint-Malo ship owners’ malouinières. Exporting linen cloths made the fortune of the linen traders between the 16th and 19th century.

Flowers and countryside

Linen and water

The river Gouët and the old mills echo the Breton linen weaving past, especially here, in the Côtes d’Armor countryside.

Learning the linen trade

Passing on

La Fabrique Atelier du Lin (Weaver’s house) will teach you all about the linen trade and the art of weaving. Try antique weaving tools, like a real loom. This cultural heritage is brought back to life!
