Musée de la rubanerie in Comines

  • Industrial heritage

The Museum of Ribbon, in the town of Comines (Belgium), traces the history of the ribbon industry since the 13th century.

This exceptional museum, a genuine workshop, invites you to meet the old Comines ribbon weavers, "les Bleus Vintes".

The Museum of Ribbon features a collection of old textile looms and masterpieces, the oldest dating back to 1700.  Should you wish to see how they work, simply ask the ribbon master to give you a demonstration.

The museum also displays cases with shuttles, multicoloured ribbon samples, historical documents, tools and machines used to make and refine ribbons.
